Shelter For All, Help For The Vulnerable

Our first guest is Ron Edwards, who once worked at the nation's largest animal shelter and who moved here last year to take over as the new director of Ames Animal Shelter. Aurora Bettaza, a 10 year old in the Ames Community School District, has spent her summer fundraising for ACSD's homeless liaison program, and comes on our show to talk about it. Finally, we place a phone call to Ann Naffier at Iowa Justice for Our Neighbors, who is calling for bilingual (Spanish-English) volunteers to assist in communicating by phone with Central American child refugees who have arrived in Iowa because family members live here. Music by Nellie Kay.
