Volunteer Spotlight: Shirley M.

shirley M.Our latest volunteer of the month is the incredible Shirley M.!

As a volunteer at the shelter, Shirley has made quite an impression on the staff and animals at BHS. She has given over 150 hours of her time in the past six months! Her hard work and dedication to the animals is noticed and appreciated by all. On top of volunteering in both the dog and cat rooms, Shirley recently completed Level 2 dog training, and she was a fospice provider for a sweet cat named Mink. Because of her compassion and kindness, Mink was able to spend his last days in a happy, loving home.

Shirley began volunteering at BHS because she loves cats and dogs, and could not think of a better way to fill her spare time. She loves the people who work at the shelter and appreciated everyone’s help and support when she started volunteering. Shirley – we appreciate you!

When Shirley is at the shelter, she loves taking the dogs out for walks, cuddling with the cats, and getting lots of puppy kisses! One of Shirley’s favorite volunteer moments came when she was working the BHS booth at the Thursday night Farmer’s Market. She was visited by one of the dogs she remembered from the shelter, and was thrilled to see how happy he looked with his new family!

We don’t know what we would do without wonderful volunteers like Shirley! Thank you so much for everything you do for the animals.
