Adoption CounselorsHumane Society of Huron Valley | (734) 662-5585 | www.hshv.org Adoption Counselors (staff and volunteers) have more detailed information about the adopted animals and might be able to suggest items that are more suited for the animal’s needs. Therefore, some items may return to the store after the meeting. We team up to ensure that the adopter leaves with the best tools for their new pet to adjust easily to their new home!
StockingStockingReplacing items purchased by customersImportant to wait to stock until after meeting in case things come backFirst In First Out: Perishable items are stocked so that things expiring first are in front Avoid overstockingDo not put too much on the hook as it will become frustrating to shop and often will make the store look unkemptCheck first for items in the cabinets under the fixture when encountering an empty hook. If all items are available space the display
FacingFacing/T-shirt FoldingPull things forward on the hookThis looks neater and will help avoid injuryChallengesThere is not a set place for the items in Paws to Shop. This makes it difficult to know where things should be. Do your best to put things back where they belong when we have children tornados come through. Remember things are generally organized by categoryT-shirts are organized by cut and then sizeSmallest on top -> Largest on BottomUse the t-shirt folding board during downtime
Noteworthy ProductsSoft-sided Cat Carriers ->Dog Crates: These have pull tabs available to reduce loss and prevent customer injury. ID Tags: Tokens for the tag machine must be purchased first at the front deskCatnip Toys vs Regular Toys: These stored separately as some cats are allergic to catnip.
