Our featured Wet Nose this week is a 2-year old male Heeler mix named Coupe. He's waiting to be adopted at the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter.

Here's what the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter has to say about this sweet boy:

 Coupe is a super bright star. He’s incredibly smart and very friendly, too! He gets along with most other dogs and would likely enjoy having a dog friend to play with.

If you would like to volunteer some of your time to the animals in need, the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter has monthly Volunteer Orientation. The next orientation is set for this Saturday, September 18 at the shelter located at 1735 Monad Road.

All YVAS Volunteers must be at least 10 years old. Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied during all volunteer activities by an adult who is also a trained YVAS volunteer. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian signature in order to participate in shelter activities.

Space is limited for the monthly Volunteer Orientation, with registration required for attendance.
