In her long years of service she has contributed over 665 hours of service and more than 560 days of fostering both puppies and kittens in her home. Stacey is one of our most prolific trainers of new volunteers, providing them with the skills and know how to successfully socialize our adoptable dogs. Stacey has a unique talent with our ‘big dogs’ and is always at every adoption event on or off site assisting them in finding forever homes. While Stacey is working tirelessly with our big dogs, she also makes it a point to take on the massive task of running our Photos with Santa Booth each year. Stacey took the lead this year on all of our December events and was incredibly helpful this entire month in working with new volunteers at the booth and helping us stay organized week after week.
