Last week, we held our annual volunteer appreciation, recognition and awards ceremony. Congratulations to ASPCA volunteer Lauri Goldman, this year’s winner of the Shining Star Award for her excellent service!
“Lauri volunteers fulltime as an Adoption Counselor,” says Diane Wilkerson, Director of the ASPCA’s Volunteer Program. “Her commitment to animal welfare and the energy she brings to our team is outstanding.”
In addition to her important role at the ASPCA Adoption Center, this past June, Lauri took her rock-star skill set to Joplin, Missouri, where she assisted the ASPCA’s Field Investigations and Response Team with cat care and on-site adoptions. Logging in over 1,500 volunteer hours this past year alone, she truly is our shining star!
Shelters across the country are looking for volunteers to help out with tasks like walking dogs, organizing fundraising events and fostering abused animals. If you think you have what it takes, check out our Top Ways to Help Your Local Shelter!
