Why do you volunteer with Mission Animal Hospital?
I strongly believe in the goal of MAH to provide affordable care to pet owners. It is heartbreaking to see people surrender a member of the family to a rescue or humane society and possible euthanasia simply because of cost.
What's your favorite volunteer task in the hospital?
Definitely not laundry.
Favorite would probably be when I am cleaning the lobby listening to pet owners tell me about their pets while they wait.
What do you do when you're not volunteering here?
Volunteer with Bitty Kitty Brigade TNR
Crafts, writing, collage
Home construction projects
Summer – gardening, volunteering at The Wildcat Sanctuary
Do you have any pets?
Of course, Currently have two 15 year old cats.
As a long term volunteer at Mission, what’s the most memorable moment in your time volunteering with?
The surgical team had just performed C-section on two dogs. Watching the determination of the team trying their best to save the very tiny puppies.
