In short, SES volunteers are categorically indispensable to our communities.

§ SES kitten makes rope tying look easy. In reality he tied himself up in knots to attain that skill level.

*Kitten hygenically did not contact inside of staff first aid kitt. Those taken on the road look different.

^Volunteers also do ongoing externally provided training. Practice makes purrfect!



  1. Cath, he is purrfectly adorable.. I know it is all in fun, but cats are pretty smart animals. Given the opportunity, they can show their stuff. If I were’t halfway around the world from you, I would snap up that little guy in a heart beat.
