Today, April 7th, kicks off National Volunteer Appreciation Week! At AAWL we have more than 450 volunteers that log 60,000 volunteer hours each year. These volunteers save AAWL more than 1 million dollars each year. We thank all of our volunteers for their work every day - and this week we’d like to highlight a handful of volunteers for their amazing dedication. To kick things off let’s talk about one of our most committed Cattery volunteers: Merlin M
Oh what can we say about our pal Dale K? He is just a hoot! Dale is kind, generous and always has smile to share. His laugh is contagious and when he’s around you can’t help but feel an extra pep in your step. Dale has been volunteering with us for a little over a year and has given 280+ hours of service! Over the last year he has walked miles and miles with pups in need, taken many, many dogs home on Gimme-A-Break, has been a huge help at some events and is a regular Retriever for our Wednesday Playgroups.
Real talk everyone, I’m a lover not a fighter! I am sooo over being judged because I have a big noggin, I got the floppy ears, and I keep myself fit. I will not apologize for the way I look: My friends at AAWL tell me I’m very handsome, and I know I am beautiful on the inside, too.
When your rural partners ask quietly for any food you can spare, you listen. Groups that operate on small budgets, and still do incredible work in their communities across the state. Rescues that have helped us save over 6,000 lives from our Rural Rescue network since 2016, Like our puppy Morgan. If they are asking, we know it’s serious. And now we ask for your help.
Chelsea, you know I love you, we’ve spent the last two years together at the shelter! I’ve brought you treats and new toys, we’ve hung out writing emails. I’m allergic to cats, and I take drugs so I don’t miss my time with you. We’re friends.
