To start 2020 off right, we are thanking one of our awesome fosters, Shayna, for all she does for Paw Patrol. Although she is a single mother, she finds time to dedicate to helping dogs get a second chance and we are so grateful she is willing to commit her time to this cause. Shayna recently told us a bit about herself and shared why she chooses to spend her time helping out the pups:
Dillon and Kathryn started volunteering with us earlier this year and we are so glad they did! Not only do they foster dogs and give them a second chance at life. They also conduct virtual home checks and process adoption applications for us. We are very happy they found us and hope to have them as volunteers for many more years.
In November, we want to give thanks to Scott, the spouse of one of our long-term fosters. Earlier this year, he decided volunteering wasn’t something he was going to be left out of and he jumped straight in!
This month we would like to take a moment to give thanks to Kym, one of our amazing volunteers! Kym does a variety of things for us, mainly to include being the lead processor on our adoption applications, training new volunteers, and riding some amazing bios for our adoptable dogs. Here is some info we recently learned about her:
This month we would like to take the time to thank one of our newer yet, amazingly dedicated, volunteers. Laurie has been a huge asset to this organization and we are so glad she found us! A little bit about Laurie:
This month we would like to take a minute to honor Mindy as our featured volunteer. Mindy adopted both of her dogs from Paw Patrol previously and once she decided to volunteer, she jumped in with both feet! Mindy has been a huge asset to the organization helping with countless tasks and has even begun fostering pups. Here is a little about Mindy:
This July we would like to give a big thank to Bobbie for being a dedicated volunteer and foster parent. She started out by writing all the thank you cards for us, but then expanded into other areas, including fostering. She takes great care of her hospice foster dog, Snow White, and is eager to learn and help in other areas. Bobbie recently told us a little bit about herself:
This month we would like to say a special thank you to Steven by highlighting him as our volunteer of the month. Steven works behind the scenes ensuring the storage garage is always tidied up, making cash runs, and assisting at events. Because he does most of his work out of the spotlight, we wanted to tell you a little more about him that you may not know.
We are excited to introduce you to Hannah, our May volunteer of the month. Hannah has really taken initiative and helped us out on a variety of things that we are truly grateful for. Although she can’t foster right now, she transports dogs, does short overnight stays, helps with events, and is always sharing our posts to get the word out about Paw Patrol.
We would like to take an opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to Jessica, our April volunteer of the month! Here is a bit about her:
As a native Daytonian, I recently moved back to the area after spending my post-college years in Washington DC. Upon my return, I knew I wanted to get involved in an organization that gave back to my community. I’ve always had a passion for all things furry, so helping animals in need was the perfect fit for me. I followed Paw Patrol’s journey for a while and was incredibly impressed that they take in dogs of all breeds, sizes, ages, and backgrounds. They also take in dogs with special medical needs and even dogs that need a hospice home to live out the rest of their days in a loving, comforting environment.
During the month of March, we would like to take a moment and congratulate Shaun on his accomplishment of being named our volunteer of the month. Shaun recently told us a little bit about himself and why he volunteers with Paw Patrol:
I’m a crazy cat lady (currently have 8 cats, 7 are rescues that really aren’t adoptable so they’re mine now). Cats in need find me, but for some reason dogs never do. I’ve rescued a total of 3 dogs in my entire life, and that’s every dog that crossed my path in need! Seems every cat in the world can find me but not the dogs and I love them.
