Thank you volunteers!
April 21, 2021
We couldn’t take care of the animals without our amazing team of Animal Care volunteers. April is volunteer appreciation month so I want to give a quick shout out to our amazing team of unpaid workers.
We missed them terribly in the first part of the pandemic when we couldn’t have any of them on grounds assisting us. Since late summer, we’ve been building our team back up. In March, over 215 hours worked were clocked in by our amazing team.
Mother-daughter team of Cassie and Cathy have been with us a couple years and have been highlighted in many previous posts. They even came in Christmas to help out!
Kate had started volunteering with us right before the pandemic began and, along with CathyCassie (I sometimes call them by one name) were the first ones to jump back in to our limited workforce when we slowly began to reopen.
In late 2020 we began opening back up to new volunteers. The following folks are new to our team, and they have been a welcome addition!
Finally, volunteer Donald has been a member of our team for 15 years or so. Most of his work is offsite right now due to the pandemic. But he, and others, haven’t forgotten us, as gift after gift after gift has been sent by him, and others, from our wish-list. Thank you Donald, and everyone, for your continued support of the Animal Care Team.
