Alan has been a volunteer with HSTB for almost a year. In that time, he has donated more than 600 hundred hours to the shelter animals. Alan walks the dogs who are not yet available for adoption, and he will not leave the shelter until each one has had his or her turn. Alan has an amazing heart and loves the animals profoundly. He has a special way of relating to the shy dogs and helping them to open up. If a dog needs a little extra attention, he will come in each day to make sure that he/she gets the special care needed.
Alan always has a smile on his face and makes a point to learn the name of every volunteer and staff member that he encounters. His passion is contagious and both HSTB and the animals at the shelter are extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful volunteer. Thank you, Alan, for all you do for the animals!
365 days a year, volunteers from all over the Tampa Bay area and beyond come to HSTB to play with puppies, walk dogs, keep the company of cats and kittens, help our clinic staff, work with potential adopters and attend special events in the community! In one year, our volunteer hours equal that of 15 full time employees! We cannot thank our volunteers enough for all the time and compassion they give to the animals.
Volunteers make the HSTB world go around. Do you have pictures of HSTB volunteers doing what they love best? Please submit to: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
Thanks to everyone there for making sure Ace got a second chance!
