This is Maurice, Volunteer of the Month for the month of November.
Maurice is retired and was in need of something worthwhile to do. He has had many dogs in his life and loves being around them. He started volunteering a couple years ago at our Annual Garage Sales. At this year’s sale Maurice says he had so much fun and met so many CA Humane Staff.
”It felt like I could/should do more. So, while thinking about this, one day the call came in for help in the laundry room. That particular day I had nothing to do so I went in and got my laundry room training. Surprise, surprise I found I liked doing the laundry (I know there must be something wrong with me…lol) and have been coming in regularly on Mondays. I like getting in some dog time between loads. I have started my journey to becoming a dog walker and I am looking forward to the day when I can go out alone.”
Thank you for your dedication and for your help with our ever-growing laundry pile! Maurice has been amazing to have in shelter and at our garage sales. He made quick friends with our staff and we enjoy seeing him on Mondays.
