I started volunteering to give myself a break from job hunting. At first it was "all about me". After the first visit I realized that being jobless was not the most tragic thing in the world; that these poor sweet victims of cruelty and neglect had no family but the staff and thatthey all have so much love to give, if a human would just take a moment to see. The staff at HSGKC are some of the most loving and selfless people I have ever met. Everything they do is for the best interest of the animals in their care, even if it means getting up at 5:00 AM to go to the shelter so a dog could be picked up by his forever mom.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my adoption of Fletch, an American Staffordshire terrier mix. Fletch was rescued from a horrible life as a bait dog in a fighting ring. HSGKC nursed him back to health and worked to socialize him so he would not fear people anymore. He's a sweet, slobbery boy with a wonderful personality that Pete and the staff helped to nurture.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get the shelter and others like it Federal funding. Maybe is we spend less on war and more on saving and improving lives we would all be better for it. There are just not enough hours in a week to raise the funds and awareness needed.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

This experience opened my eyes and my heart in a way they never were. I am humbled and at the same time fulfilled from spending time with the humans and the animals at the HSGKC.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Our beloved L.T. was almost 17 when he died. My husband was overcome with grief. I searched Petfinder for another small dog. When I saw Maggie Mae, I knew that she was just what we needed. She was a 10 year old special needs dog whose owner was suffering from cancer. She had actually been brought to HSGKC for euthanasia. She was the perfect compainon to my disabled husband. After my husband died, I wanted to give back to the organization. Being useful to this team of dedicated individuals has helped me establish myself as a single person after 47 years of marriage. It is the highlight of my week to spend time helping them. My granddaughters volunteer with me during their summer vacation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I usually volunteer in the reception area and I get to see the way that HSGKC does everything in their power to help people take care of their pets.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage more financial support for this organization.
