Q: What do you do for work? For fun?
My main gig is a stay-at-home Mom to 3 wonderful kids! I also have a part time administrative job working for a real estate appraiser. I love spending time outside…hiking, running and biking are my favorite!
Q: How long have you been volunteering and what made you decide to volunteer with Save-a-Bull?
I’ve been with SAB since November of 2017, so a little over two years. I adopted my first rescue dog in Texas from a dog fighting ring and he was the BEST dog ever. It made me realize my passion for changing the negative reputation that pit bulls have. They deserve so much more and I want to be a part of caring for them and changing people’s minds about them.
Q: Why do you think it’s important to volunteer?
It’s important to give back and to find outlets for your passions.
Q: How do you volunteer your time with Save-a-Bull?
I am responsible for some small administrative items — sending thank you notes and decals. I also foster and temp foster.
Q: What’s the most rewarding experience you’ve had as a volunteer with Save-a-Bull so far?
Fostering has been my most rewarding experience. It’s so hard to say goodbye, but the love I’ve received and given to my foster outweighs everything. It also brings me joy to see my kids take care of dogs that aren’t their own….they have benefited from all of the playing and snuggling as well. The love and fun in our house is overwhelming when we have a foster dog!
Q: If you had the opportunity to be involved in other parts of rescue, what would they be?
I would love to be involved in the in-take process at some point, but there are a lot of goals I have before then…to attend a spay/neuter day, volunteer and become more familiar with events, and continue working with foster dogs on training.
Thank you to Megan, and ALL our volunteers, for putting yourselves out there to truly make a difference! #volunteerappreciationweek
