VISION LOSS RESOURCES
August 17, 2011

I volunteer for Vision Loss Resources and find it very rewarding. I have completed the guided sight training and work with clients with low or no vision. I teach knitting and other hand crafts. The clients are able to make beautiful items to give back to the community. They are so thankful for the help that is given. I have been rewarded in ways that are not monetary. I find this an enjoyable place to volunteer and the rewards of helping those that truely want help. This is not busy work. This is enjoyment at it's finest.

NATIONAL BRITTANY RESCUE AND ADOPTION NETWORK INC
August 17, 2011

I am a State coordinator for National Brittany Rescue and Adoption network. I help people find the right Brittany for their family. This is a wonderful organization. I started out fostering two Brittanies which I fell in love with. The organization will cover vet costs and transportation cost. You take care of the foster dog, just like you would your own pet. Then someone sees what a wonderful pet they are and chooses to adopt your foster. Mine went to a loving home in another state. They were transported by wonderful volunteers who cared for them just like I would. The dogs got to their forever home and are with a happy new family. This organization cares for and rescues dogs, vets them and makes them part of very loving families. This is a rewarding volunteer effort because of the beautiful success stories each and every dog that touches your life.
