Kayla is our January volunteer of the month. She has helped us out in many different roles, most often as a foster parent. Here is a little bit about Kayla and why she volunteers her time to help Paw Patrol:
“I’m 22 and work as a software quality assurance analyst, I also attend grad school full time and have 2 sweet huskies (and 2 kitties!) who keep me very busy. My biggest passion in life is working with animals. Two of my earliest memories as a child are feeding an injured Cardinal cheerios out behind my house until it was well enough to fly again and rescuing a tiny kitten out of a dumpster. I grew up with dogs and showed in county 4H for 10 years. I volunteered at the humane society during high school; the feelings of showing a neglected, stray, or homeless animal love, reuniting a lost animal with their family, or finding a puppy a perfect new home are the best feelings in the world. Paw Patrol has given me opportunities to save shelter babies who without a foster would have been put to sleep. There are so many ways to help animals and make a difference in our community – I love working with Paw Patrol!”
We are very thankful for volunteers like Kayla. As you can see she is definitely busy, but still makes time to help out a charity that needs her. Thank you so much for your time and dedication, Kayla!!
