Today we give our thanks to one of our elite kennel volunteers: Vince M

Vince began his volunteer career at AAWL nearly 10 years ago in August of 2009 and has since given over 1,600 hours of service. Vince is one of our early birds who focuses on dogs who have newly arrived to the shelter on what we call our “Staging Side Kennels”. When dogs first arrive at the shelter they are often afraid and stressed with the new environment which is why volunteers like Vince are so vital! Vince has an amazing way with the dogs and a commitment to getting them out of their kennels on walks to exercise their bodies and calm their minds. He spends time just about Tuesday, Thursday and even Sunday mornings to ensure that our pups get the outlet they need. We cannot thank Vince enough for his commitment to our shelter and the dogs who need him the most.
