MICROCHIP CLINIC - JULY 23 10:00-4:00
I didn’t know what to do with my time, without him and I was just so sad. One of the volunteers from The CAWS, who I met at the pet store, started to tell me more about The CAWS organization and volunteer opportunities. When I learnt about their Guardian Angel Program (GAP), it really touched my heart. I was blessed to be able to leave my situation and take Thai with me, protecting him from harm and drawing on his love and support to help me through such a challenging time. This was when I decided that I wanted to volunteer for The CAWS in honour of Thai.
Since starting with rescue I have volunteered to do a number of things - assisting to drive animals to and from events and vet appointments, assisting with adoption events, making posters for events, and recently becoming a foster home. I enjoy my time with The CAWS as it is a great group of people who work tirelessly to give animals and humans bright hope for happy, fur-ever futures.
I've been thinking of volunteering for a local animal rescue group for a while but never really took a step towards making it happen. When our dogs' groomers mentioned that The CAWS was looking for volunteers, I took that as a sign to apply and finally get my volunteering started. It wasn't until I had two dogs of my own that I truly understood the need to help out displaced/abandoned dogs. It surprised me the amount of work that it takes to get this organization running day to day! I am very grateful for The CAWS and this opportunity to help out, even in the smallest way possible. I volunteer with a group of amazing people who are selfless in their love for animals and I'm so proud to be part of this organization.
