Volunteer Shout Out
Krystal started volunteering at Friends For Life in August of 2015, and she has shown herself to be a truly dedicated and multifaceted volunteer with diverse interests and talents. She chose to volunteer here because she loves animals, wanted to support the No Kill cause and was interested in meeting others that share those same interests. She is here nearly every weekend and during the week, rain or shine.
Not only is Krystal a senior dog volunteer, but she is also an adoption counselor, a level III behavior volunteer and an events volunteer. Always one to go above and beyond expectations, she, effortlessly and without hesitation, has jumped in time and time again to help with our dogs that require extra care, whether it be for medical or behavioral issues. As a behavior volunteer, Krystal's favorite thing to do is to assist with play dates. She said, "The great thing about being a behavior volunteer is that you get to spend more time with the behavior cases so you get to know them and watch their progression. It is very rewarding." While she enjoys working with all of the dogs here at the shelter, Maxwell and Dolly both hold very special places in her heart. She also has taken on great responsibility in helping our new volunteers by assisting with New Volunteer Orientation and guiding them through their first shifts.
In the short time that you have been volunteering here at FFL, you have made a huge impact on the lives of the animals here. Thank you so much for all that you do - you are truly amazing!
