Q: How do you volunteer your time specifically with Save-a-Bull?
I am on the Adoption Event Committee so I run adoption events throughout the year. I am on hand to answer any questions the potential adopters or fosters may have and make sure the events go smoothly. I also like to volunteer at other events throughout the year such as the bake sale and brewery tours.
Q: How long have you been with Save-a-Bull?
I have been with Save-a-Bull for 3 years and am enjoying all of my time with the rescue.
Q: How did you learn about Save-a-Bull and what made you decide to volunteer?
I first heard about Save-a-Bull at the Pet Expo in Minneapolis. We had recently moved to Minnesota and I was looking to get involved in something. We have a pit mix and we stopped at the Save-a-Bull booth to check it out. I loved what the group was doing for the breed and signed up to volunteer right away!
Q: What’s the most rewarding experience you’ve had as a volunteer so far?
It’s rewarding to see all of the families at the adoption events looking to add to their family. They are always so excited to meet the dogs. (And get puppy kisses of course!!) It’s even better when you see that the adoption went through and the dog has found it’s furever home!
Q: Do you have any dogs of your own?
I have two wonderful dogs. One is a pit/lab mix and the other is a collie/husky mix. They definitely keep me on my toes and make life more enjoyable.
Q: What do you do for work? For fun?
I work as a corporate trainer for a home mortgage company in Minneapolis. For fun I like to go kayaking, bicycling, read, visit family and friends, travel, take my dogs for walks, and spend time with my husband and daughter.
