Volunteer Shout Out

A Special Shout Out to Lauren Barker!

Lauren started volunteering at the shelter in September of 2018. She jumped in and quickly became a huge help to the staff and a great comfort for the dogs. She loves to take the dogs on long walks to get them out of the kennel and give them some well-deserved enrichment.

Mikey has stolen her heart with his goofy personality and his lovable charm. She loves coming in to hang with him and get him out for some bonding time on a walk outside.


The fun doesn't stop for Lauren once she leaves the shelter, as she goes home to her two loving dogs, Leeroy, the 9 year old who runs the house, and Bella, the sweet 5 year old Brindle dog.
