Cheer volunteers help out around Albany

March 3, 2007

Lee County -- Young cheerleaders and dancers from the area trade in their pom poms to help homeless pets.

Young volunteers from the CATS Cheer Center walked and played with dogs at the Lee County Humane Shelter. Fellow team members were all over town volunteering at several different locations for the organization's first-ever volunteer day.

They say it's a good feeling to help those in need.

"These dogs need love because they are strays, and nobody wants them, so it's good that people are out here to pet them and play with them," said volunteer cheerleader Kaniesha Boyland.

"Most of the kids really have a lot, and it's important they learn to give back. That not everybody has the same things they have," said parent Helen Heiskell.

Up to eighty children with CATS volunteered their time at the Humane Shelter, Habitat for Humanity, or Evergreen Assisted Living.
