Our Volunteer Spotlight is Elizabeth Crain who has been volunteering with us since 2014. Elizabeth lends a helping hand in a variety of ways including Read and Relax, Dog Walking, Cat Socialization, Dog Washes and finally Data Entry!
Elizabeth enjoys volunteering for many reasons. “I love animals and animal welfare is one of my passions,” she shares, “but I also love seeing our community come together to support animals in need. It is incredible to see small impacts like a pup getting more confident or a kitten finding just the right family to call its own as well as the move toward policy change in our community and our state!”
When Elizabeth is not volunteering, she has pets at home to pamper. Izzy (a gray tabby who recently passed away) was her first rescue animal, and she was with Elizabeth through many moves and ups and downs of life! Currently, Elizabeth and her husband have 2 amazing pups, Stella (7) is a black lab mix that was an "accident" puppy from a couple in NC and Penny (also 7) who was found at a friend's home off of a dirt road where she had been abandoned. You might see Elizabeth out on the town with Penny, who is their calm, cool and collected pup, while Stella loves to go to the dog park and run off all of her lab energy off-leash!
Thank you, Elizabeth, for all of your volunteer service and for brightening the lives of the shelter animals and your fellow shelter staff and volunteers. We are so grateful to have you as part of the team!
