Q: How do you volunteer your time specifically with Save-a- Bull?
I am Save-a-Bull’s content coordinator, so I spend my time looking through cute pictures of our foster dogs, and uploading them to their profiles. I also take fosters information and form bios for the dogs. I have also fostered dogs in the past, which resulted in adopting my Tommy boy.
Q: How long have you been with Save-a- Bull?
I have been with Save-a-Bull for about 3 years now.
Q: How did you learn about Save-a- Bull and what made you decide to volunteer?
My husband and I adopted our first pittie Belle from a different organization which lead to our love of the breed. We happened to see Save-a-Bull had a garage sale near us, and we wanted to support a bully breed rescue. We immediately knew it was an organization for us and began volunteering.
Q: What’s the most rewarding experience you’ve had as a volunteer so far?
Because I deal with the dog’s profiles, the most rewarding experience has been hearing potential adopters say they felt a connection to a dog through their images and bio. It makes me feel like I have an integral part in finding them their forever homes.
Q: Do you have any dogs of your own?
Yes Belle is my grumpy princess. She is a 7 year old pit mix that we love to death. Tommy was a foster of ours that we ended up adopting. He is a 4 year old pit mix as well.
Q: What do you do for work? For fun?
For work I am an independent contractor for chemistry labs, specializing in nano materials. I am also the marketing and events manager at LynLake Brewery.
For fun, I like to hang with my pups and my family. I also enjoy golfing, skiing, and working on house projects with my husband.
