Meet our Volunteer of the Month, Richard!
Richard came to volunteer at Animal Services as a participant of the Work Force Solutions Borderplex Program. This amazing partnership fits the right people seeking jobs in community-based organizations to promote the learning of workplace skills, duties, and hands-on experience and thankfully, the Animal Services Volunteer Program is one of their tried and true partners. Richard excelled in this program and brought a whole bunch of respect, courtesy, and kitty love! Luckily, Richard decided to stay on board volunteering with Animal Services, even after his Workforce program finished.
When we say “luckily”, we are not “kittin’” around! Richard comes by the shelter nearly every single week to ensure that every single one of our cats and kittens in our Cat Adoption area are taken care properly and are adorably enriched and loved. Richard is always willing to assist new volunteers that help us in our Cat Adoption area and often sends us precious videos of the cats he was interacting with.
It is safe to say that Animal Services and all its adoptable cats and kittens are beyond fortunate to have a loving, calm soul such as Richard to be by their sides until they find their furever homes. Please join us in thanking one of our most purrfect volunteers, Richard, for being this Volunteer of the Month!
