This month we would like to recognize a volunteer who has touched just about every aspect of our shelter: Shawn W
My name is Duke, and your monthly donations saved my life.
After my mom passed away, I was tied up in a backyard for two years by people I thought would care for me. I cuddled with my sister for warmth and shared all my food so we could stay strong. We were eventually surrendered to a veterinarian for euthanasia for “medical issues”, but an AAWL partner knew they could save me with AAWL’s help.
Our Chandler Mall Adoption Center has some truly incredible volunteers, one of whom we would like to acknowledge today: Paula D
This month we would like to recognize Patty & Thomas L., an unstoppable mother/son duo! Combined Patty and Thomas have given more than 1,800 hours to our shelter animals over the last 3 years. These two are some of our most dedicated week day volunteer crew who spend their afternoons each week at the shelter helping our pups with exercise and socialization. The afternoons are tough for volunteers, especially when its 100+ degrees outside, but the heat doesn’t stop these two! They come to every shift with a smiles on their faces, ready to take on the day.

What can we say about Lisa B. She has been with the shelter for almost 8 years and while she has logged more than 2,500 “volunteer hours” her hours of fostering kittens far exceeds that. Lisa helps in all areas of the shelter from our Chandler location to our various fundraising events, but her true home lies with our foster department. Lisa fosters just about any animal that needs to spend time in a home but her specialty is with mama cats and their kittens and/or bottle babies.
Today we would like to spotlight a volunteer who has supported AAWL for well over a decade and is an incredible advocate for animals in general: Ashsuire F
