Why We Walk: Sandy’s Story

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.

I am honored to be a volunteer at Save-A-Pet and to be part of the journey in the lives of our residents!”
