Prekindergarten roundup moves online

Volunteers needed for shelter

The West Feliciana Parish animal shelter needs additional volunteers, especially people who can put the shelter on their weekly schedule and work either 9 a.m. to noon or noon to 4 p.m. The shelter is open seven days a week and the work can be dirty, so keeping the schedule full with limited volunteers has been tough.
