Helen Woodward Animal Center loves their volunteers and adoptable dogs

Helen Woodward Animal Center offers many wonderful volunteer opportunities!  One of those is in the adoptions department helping to socialize and care for adoptable dogs and cats.  Marian Higdon and Valerie Viterbi have both been volunteering in adoptions for well over 5 years and love it!  Today they had fun with “Rudy”, a 4 year old Belgian Shepherd mix.  Rudy is a volunteer favorite, he is smart, handsome and has great leash manners… we call him our gentle giant at 84 lbs!

Linda Erlich has been a volunteer at Helen Woodward Animal Center for almost 3 years!  She works with both cats and dogs, her current  fave is “Tinker”, a one and a half year old Aussie mix.  Tinker is very affectionate and loving, he loves walks and his volunteers!

Dana Denson has 2 kitties at home, so she gets her dog fix (and exercise!) every Monday afternoon!  Dana is coming up on 7 years with Helen Woodward, it is hard to tell who are the lucky ones, the volunteers or the animals!?  It looks like everyone wins!
