I’m recently semi-retired and wanted to volunteer in some capacity to continue to help out where needed. I love to spend time hiking and walking in the park. I had just lost my hiking partner to lymphoma. A beautiful rescue Pitty that loved hiking and going everywhere with me.
What is your favorite part of volunteering at BHS?
I love rescue animals because they are so loyal and grateful when given that second or third ( or as many chances as it takes) for a home. My favorite part of volunteering is that opportunity to just be in the presence of all those special animals. I think its pretty amazing how they are willing to give us that second or third chance. I love it when I come back after a few days and see who is gone knowing they found a home. I know I’m going to find my next hiking buddy there!
What is your favorite area to volunteer in?
I love volunteering at BHS with the dogs. No matter what mood you may be in they will certainly put you in a much better one! They are always so happy to see you. It’s hard to resist those soulful eyes when you walk in. They are up for any adventure.
Do you have any animals of your own?
I currently have 2 pets. Rocco, my 16 year old terrier who hates to leave the house and Gravel, a cat that my grandson found as a kitten on the side of the road in the gravel!
