How long have you volunteered? Since Feb 2010
How were you introduced to PAWS? Found PAWS on line when searching for a way to help shelter dogs.

What do you do as a volunteer? I started by checking references on applications. Now I foster, do my own applications and do home visits for other adoption coordinators.

My favorite volunteer moment was when I saw my dogs looking into the dining room with clearly puzzled expressions because my foster, Brandon, was standing in the middle of the dining room table. I also love picking up the dogs at transport.

Want to help PAWS in our life-saving work? Donate, adopt, or volunteer your time.
