When we need something done, Fox is a go-to volunteer! His depth of knowledge, and ability to go the extra mile never ceases to amaze us. He has volunteered so much of his free time at our Pet Food and Supply Pantry. He quickly became a team leader and helped keep the Pet Food and Supply Pantry organized, clean, and easily accessible to those in great need. He knows every inch of the place and can direct staff and volunteers alike to where we need to go to find anything.
Fox has also been a valued volunteer for special events. He has helped at everything he can from our biggest fundraisers to many of our smaller fundraisers and community awareness projects as well! He is an amazing example of a compassionate, kind, hard-working, and outstanding volunteer. We couldn’t keep our doors open without volunteers like him.
Randy, a staff member who works closely with Fox, had this to say about him, “John Fox began volunteering at Butte Humane in response to the disastrous Camp Fire of 2018, his focused work ethic gave order and structure to the chaos of the event and kept the Pet Food Pantry running smoothly and efficiently. Usually, the first person to arrive in the morning and the last one to leave at night- his dedication, leadership, and sacrifice were an inspiration to volunteers and staff alike. Fox spent countless hours unloading, inventorying, and shelving literally tons of pet supplies for the displaced survivors of the Campfire. The dedication didn’t end with the fire, for over two years the work continued with the Pet Food Pantry and was instrumental in shaping the program to this day. Possessing a degree in Zoology and extensive hands-on experience with domestic and exotic animals has been an important and vital resource for our organization.”
When asking others for testimonials about him, the same themes popped up every time. Words and phrases like “work ethic”, “leadership”, “dedication”, “an instrumental part of our team”. Words that were and are truly felt throughout our organization by both volunteers and staff alike.
As Fox moves on to the next step in his journey, everyone who has had the opportunity and pleasure of working with him will always remember his dedication with gratitude. Good luck on your newest adventure Fox, you will be deeply missed and always supported here at BHS!
