Kids from Hands-On Thomas County showed up at the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society to give homeless animals a little TLC on Wednesday.

The service group visited the humane society to lend a hand.

It was all 'paws' on deck as 26 middle and high schoolers walked and bathed the pooches.

Says student volunteer Christy Quinton, "[The dogs] don't have anybody to take care of them, like, as their owner, so we get to wash them and give them that feeling. It makes me feel good about myself like I'm helping the community."

The Humane Society employs 14 full-time staff members.

Director Ed Williams says having the group spend time with the animals makes things easier on his staff.
