At BHS, we have a lot of cat people and a lot of dog people, and then we have Miriam. At 22 years of age, Chico State student Miriam Ibarra spends hour upon hour volunteering in all areas of the organization. It seems that everywhere you look she is there, quietly making an undeniably large impact on the organization.
You can always tell when her semester in school is over, because the hours she spends helping BHS between semesters triple. She obviously works hard on her biology degree, but still finds time to help out the animals at BHS. When most students finish a semester they want to take a well deserved break. Not Miriam. And we love her for it!
In June Miriam earned the role of Mentor to other volunteers. We are so excited about that because if she can train new volunteers to do what she does, we would be the luckiest shelter of all.
Thank you Miriam for being an outstanding volunteer.
