We asked our volunteers and supporters to share with you why they walk in the Petathlon and why they raise funds for Save-A-Pet through this annual event. Here is a story from Save-A-Pet volunteer Sandy.
“I began volunteering at SAP because I love animals and I love photography so it seemed natural that I should combine my two loves into one endeavor. I believe that we are able to catch a glimpse into our better nature when we interact with animals. I also believe that it is our responsibility to take care of these precious creatures and provide for their well-being by finding them good homes with loving families.
While socializing in the cat room and playing with the dogs outside, I get to experience the unique personalities and the love that these adoptable animals have to offer to a family. They give constant amusement and unconditional love. My joy has been taking photos of SAPs cats and dogs – hoping to capture, share and showcase their true heart and spirit. I love to hear about adoptions and the amazing, inspirational stories of how the lives of the families are transformed when a pet is made part of their family.
I am honored to be a volunteer at Save-A-Pet and to be part of the journey in the lives of our residents!”
