Volunteer Spotlight: Megan M.

IMG_0460Our latest Volunteer of the month is the outstanding Megan M!

Megan is a college student who started working with BHS after her dog passed away. She really missed having an animal friend but wasn’t ready to make the commitment quite yet. So, when she saw that her friend adopted a dog from BHS, she knew that this would be the perfect place to volunteer!

Megan became an amazing addition to the volunteer staff the moment she started working with the dogs. She works incredibly hard to give the dogs all of the love they deserve. She said her favorite part of volunteering is seeing how much the dogs appreciate a little play time and attention. Another thing Megan fell in love with about BHS is how much the staff and other volunteers care about each individual animal.

After volunteering for only a short while, Megan fell in love with a dog named Dyson. She didn’t know if she was ready to adopt him so she decided to be a foster. She said it was amazing to see Dyson grow from shy and scared to an outgoing and loving dog. The BHS staff really appreciated Megan working with Dyson and credit her for getting him adopted after only a couple of weeks in her home after having lived months and months in the shelter.  For this, we are so appreciative.

Megan has continued to foster dogs and isn’t deterred if a dog doesn’t work out well in her home. She loves it so much that she tries again. She loves to take the dogs swimming or on hikes and can not get enough of all the cuddles!

As a busy college student, it is wonderful that Megan makes the time to visit with our animals. We are so lucky to have incredibly dedicated volunteers like Megan!
