AARCS Featured Volunteer:
A word from Mary:
I am honoured to be chosen as AARCS’ volunteer of the month. I am so very proud to be part of the wonderful AARCS family. My love of animals began – when I was born! I have always loved animals. I believe whole heartedly that all our animal friends deserve to be treated with love, care, respect, and compassion.
When I retired from teaching in 2014, I knew I wanted to contribute to our community in some kind of volunteer capacity. AARCS is my choice because I see how much this amazing organization cares about the welfare of animals and does everything it can not only to help animals, but educate people.
My work with the AARCS Education team is extremely rewarding. I experience firsthand the impact community outreach has on spreading the message of “changing lives through kindness”. I also love my shifts at the cat shelter, and I am currently fostering a sweet little kitty who is recovering from dental surgery. Every life that is saved brings me joy.
Thank you, AARCS, for making a difference and giving me the opportunity to make a difference, too!
