During the month of December, we have chosen to honor Rebecca as our volunteer of the month.  She is a great asset to our team and we are very happy she chose us to work with.  Rebecca started volunteering for Paw Patrol Dayton as a foster in July after her dog passed. Rebecca wanted to help other dogs like her late dog, and wasn’t yet ready to make a long-term commitment to another dog, so fostering was a perfect fit.

We are honored to feature Sarah and Jarrod as our June volunteers of the month. This awesome couple opens their home to dogs in need by participating in our foster program. Sarah and Jarrod have spent the last 5 years creating their fur family, affectionately referred to as their #sixpack. They are proud parents to Haley, Bentley, Champ, Ginger, Finley, and their sweet Lily who recently went to doggie heaven. Visiting shelters, researching rescues, and realizing the great need for help for animals in the community fueled their desire to become involved. In addition to Paw Patrol, Sarah volunteers at SICSA Pet Adoption Center and with Rescue Me Ohio as part of their education & advocacy team. Jarrod worked for the local Humane Society as an adoption coordinator, and works at Clayton Pet Hotel and spa, so it’s easy to say, their lives have gone to the dogs!

For the month of May, we would like to highlight Kent, one of our dedicated volunteers. Kent is always willing to transport for us – dogs, supplies, and anything else we ask of him. Kent retired from the city of Fairborn and is currently living in Xenia with his wife, Debbie, and their three rescued dachshunds Sammy, Kody and Bailey. Kent enjoys volunteering and helping others. Recently, he stated, “I’m happy to have a part in Paw Patrol, rescuing the forgotten, lost, and lonely dogs and giving them a chance for a new life.” We greatly appreciate Kent’s dedication and willingness to spend his time helping dogs in need!

Sarah is our February volunteer of the month and we couldn’t have found a more dedicated and committed person to help our organization. Sarah not only fosters dogs, she also always jumps at the chance to help in any other way she can, such as transporting dogs or helping at events. Sarah is getting her bachelor’s degree in social work from Wright State and spends her free time playing rugby for Dayton Area Rugby Club and watching Criminal Minds and Madame Secretary. When asked why she fosters for us, she recently stated, “Fostering with Paw Patrol is the biggest part of my life. I have been fostering for Paw Patrol for about 6 months and I really enjoying working with such awesome people. I love that I am able to help make so many differences in so many lives by fostering dogs who would otherwise be euthanized.”  We love Sarah and are so honored she has chosen us to dedicate her time and efforts. Thank you, Sarah, for everything you do for all the dogs!!
