Thank You to the Pet Rescue Volunteers

As 2009 begins, we want to thank all of our volunteers for their dedication to Pet Rescue. The cats and dogs at our shelter benefit greatly from the time the volunteers spend socializing the cats and dogs and walking the dogs.... Norma, Matthew, Maritza, Kathy C., Kathy W., Howard, Leigh, Lisa, Lewis, Michael, Norma M., Emily, Breta, Angelo, Maggie, Xiomara, Maureen, Carlene, Manon, Christina, Vicky, Donna, Lynn, Kat, Robin and all the others who take time out of their busy schedules to be a friend to our animals. Please forgive us if we have not mentioned your name but be aware that the dogs and cats know who you are and your devotion to them.

A special thank you to Emily Tanen for the photos of the dogs she so generously shared with us for posting on our website as well as Petfinder and AdoptAPet. Taking photos of the dogs is not an easy task and we appreciate the assistance she provided to our volunteer photographer, Lynn.

And to our main volunteer and president, Kathy Wasconis. What can we say? Your 25 years of dedication to our shelter is unprecedented and you have earned your wings!
