November — Dee K.
Our wonderful volunteer Dee started volunteering as a pet partner dog walker with her 15-year-old daughter in September 2009. Although her daughter’s busy school schedule didn’t cooperate with volunteering, Dee didn’t let that stop her! She enjoyed her time with the dogs so much, she couldn’t wait until her next dog walking session–and that’s been true for her for the past 9 years!
Dee says that dog walking is therapeutic–it eases her stress. And most importantly, she enjoys walking dogs because it gives them an opportunity to get out of their kennels, to stretch their legs, and to go potty. Her goal every Wednesday evening is to get as many dogs out of their kennels as she can!
The best part? Dee says that it’s the satisfaction she gets by knowing how happy it makes the dogs to get her attention. They’re just as happy to see her as Dee is to see them. And that’s what makes it all worth it!
Thank you, Dee, for making our dogs a part of your week. They appreciate it, and we certainly do, too!
