When you visit the Robins-Starr Humane Center, the first thing you may notice is how relaxed and happy many of the dogs and cats look. Our animal care staff prides itself on maintaining a clean and comfortable environment for the dogs and cats as they await adoption. This helps maintain good physical and mental health for the orphaned pets in our care.
Each Friday, from 5 to 7 p.m., we will hold a wash-a-thon! This is how it works: community volunteers can stop by the front desk of the Robins-Starr Humane Center between 5 and 7 p.m. to pick up a bag of dirty laundry and washing instructions. Then just take the laundry bag home, wash and dry the laundry and return it back to the front desk (in the clean bag provided) anytime during our normal business hours the following week.
It may seem like a small task, but it’s a huge need that makes a real difference in the day-to-day lives of the dogs and cats in our care! Homeless dogs and cats will thank you!
