This month we would like to recognize Melissa as our featured volunteer. She processes adoption applications for us, along with doing a short term foster or two and helping with other odds and ends. We really appreciate her efforts and are glad she chose Paw Patrol to work with! Below is a bit about Melissa:
During April, we want to take a minute and highlight Holly as our volunteer of the month. Holly started volunteering with us about a year ago and she has been a wonderful addition to our team. She fosters dogs, processes adoption applications, and helps out on our fundraising committee.
This month we are recognizing Tony as our volunteer of the month. He hasn’t been with us too long, but he jumped right in and has been a big help to our organization. Tony started with us as a short-term foster by caring for dogs when other foster had to go out of town, but has now progressed to his first full-time foster pup with Ruger. He has also done loads of document scanning, repaired a high-impact crate he found online and saved us a bunch of money, and often helps out with events.
Our February volunteers of the month are The Van Heulens, a family who knows what it means to serve their community. Their kids are always with them at events and learning how to give back, which is such an amazing gift to them. We are so thankful this family found us, and even though we have to talk Tracy out of trying to adopt every one of her foster dogs, we couldn’t be happier with having them as a part of our team!
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.
