They also offer public education about animal care and anti-bullying campaigns for kids. This non-profit, no kill shelter currently has over 300 dogs, cats and small animals who are seeking adoption and being cared for by a hard-working staff and a small army of volunteers. Wayside Waifs depends on the support and generosity of donors, foster parents, and local business to continue their 24/7, 365 days a year care.
