Volunteer of the Month

January — Chris S.

Thanks to wonderful APL Volunteers like Chris, our dogs are able to go out for multiple walks a day! Chris has been volunteering as a dog walker at the Cleveland APL since 2012 and has become a wonderful part of our dogs’ days.

Chris and his wife Kathryn have a cat at home, but this dog-lover gets his chance to hang out with our dogs every week. And in exchange, he helps get them fresh air, exercise, a change of scenery, and (of course) a potty break. The best part of volunteering for him is knowing that he is helping out just a little in the big picture of operations at the APL.

Most of all, Chris says, “I am very impressed with all of the APL staff. All of them give excellent care and compassion to all the animals, not just dogs. I am amazed that Animal Care Associates always remember a dogs name especially since there are so many of them coming and going. I am always impressed with the front desk staff as well, they treat the public very well.”

Thank you, Chris, for your helping our animals!
