Volunteer Memories & Moments

LifeLine volunteers are like no other!

As we move through another year of incredible challenges, we wanted to take a second to show our gratitude for the things you’ve helped us accomplish by sharing two volunteer memories and a photo album of great volunteer moments.

Thank you for all of the dogs walked, pups bathed, kittens fed, cats coerced, and fosters snuggled with.  Here are some pictures of other pretty special moments. We are so lucky to have all of you on the LifeLine team.

"My favorite moments are those when cats like Juice come into the shelter with no trust in humans, and then turn around.

For over 7 months, Juice flattened his ears and hissed at people. One day, it was discovered that Juice LOVES creamy treats so much that he would crawl into our laps to lick it off the tube. Now, Juice can be petted while he enjoys his treats in a lap! The next best moment will be when someone adopts Juice who will love him as much as his shelter friends do.”

“The Volunteer Coordinator gave me extra support via a 1-on-1 mentor shift towards my training to become a Level 2 volunteer. And, when Marvin the puppy befriended me!”
