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.
This month, we would like to introduce to you one of our wonderful volunteers, Amy. She is one of those volunteers who has stayed out of the limelight, but been so helpful behind the scenes. Here is a little bit
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.
During this month of giving, we want to give thanks to one of our dedicated fosters, Michelle. She has taken in five of our dogs in a short time and provided a wonderful foster home for them. Here is a bit about Michelle:
Chris and Emily are two of our newer foster parents, but they have already done a great job saving the lives of many dogs. They jumped right in with both feet and haven’t complained once! Chris and Emily are wonderful team players and go above and beyond for their foster dogs. In order to get to know why they chose to start fostering, here is a little bit about each of them:
This month we would like to take a moment and congratulate Melissa on being our September volunteer of the month. Melissa has taken on many roles and duties with us and we are honored to have her be such a dedicated member of our team.
We are honored to announce Michelle as our August Volunteer of the Month. Michelle is a dedicated volunteer who mostly chooses to transport dogs from high-kill shelters to safety with a Paw Patrol foster. Recently, we asked Michelle why she chooses to volunteer for us and she said,
