As a board member of Lucy's House for the Prevention of Homeless Pets I have found it to be wonderfully rewarding experience to be part of such an effective organization that respects the dignity of pet owners and their pets while helping feed over 600 pets a month though Meals on Wheels programs and 26 local food shelves throughout the entire state of Vermont. The work Lucy's House does has supported seniors, veterans, military families, people with disabilities, and people who have lost their jobs in keeping their pets in their homes. Not only does Lucy's House provide free pet food and homemade dog biscuits, dog and cat toys but they also provide medical support for pet owners for emergency pet care. Lucy's House works to end senior hunger by providing them with pet food so they can eat their own human food vs. giving it to their pets. My work with Lucy's House stems from my love of animals and desire to ensure that families can keep their pets during difficult times because I believe in the value that pets provide through their loyalty, uncondtional love, and companionship.
