“Being a volunteer is one of the best decisions I ever made. It’s such a rewarding experience to work with people that really need you.”

“I want you to know how much I appreciate you spending time with me; I don’t know what I would do without you.”

“I have been matched with two women who are now 91 & 92 years old…they are so very grateful to be able to stay in their own homes with their pets. It gives me great pleasure to have such a positive impact in their lives…. In one word describing my relationship with both these ladies — ‘priceless!’”
