It’s hard to get any EARS volunteer to stand still for a minute, let alone to get a group of them to stand still for a minute all at the same time!
EARS volunteer Mike Brodersen managed to do just that, and we’re glad he did. He snapped this rare group photo at the end of the day, before anyone had a chance to shower or clean up. Despite their exhaustion and the oppressive heat, the volunteers still feel like saying that they’re number one!
This photo was taken a few days into the response, so a (relative) calm and routine had been achieved. That day, the volunteers started caring for the animals at 8 a.m., took a mid-day break so all the volunteers and pups could enjoy a brief siesta, and concluded around 7:30 p.m.
