I began volunteering at AAS in mid Jan 2005 and am about to celebrate 15 years at the shelter. I promised myself when I retired that I would devote time to help animals in need and assist in finding permanent homes for them. Finding the Animal Aid Society with its no-kill policy was the perfect fit for me.
I serve as shiftleader on Thursdays and also volunteer on Tuesdays. I’ve served on the board in the past, was treasurer for 2 years, worked with the adoption committee and served as chair for several years. I also handle one or two home visits each month for AAS dogs who have recently been adopted in Hampton.
I want to do all I can to assist in the rebuilding of AAS to ensure there will always be a no-kill shelter in Hampton for homeless, abandoned, abused and stray dogs. Just as AAS’s structure has significantly changed since its inception in 1971, I hope to play a role in the rebuild of a state-of-the art facility that serves as a role model for other rescue organizations throughout Virginia.
