Sleeping on the Job

every day, 75 yr old Terry Lauerman goes down to the Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary in Green Bay, Wisconsin

there, he ‘works’ as a volunteer, spending about 3 hours each day grooming the rescue cats – an activity both he and the cats find equally enjoyable and relaxing . . .

after the shelter put up a post about Terry on Facebook, the post went viral and . . . The resulting publicity has seen donations flooding in, providing funds for the shelter to continue their important work for years to come!
