This is why Christine Sablone is a DPA Pawesome Person!
What is your current role?
I am the Adoption Counselor Lead, a Foster mom, and a Foster Rep
How did you get involved with volunteering at DPA?
Three years ago, I began looking for a group to volunteer my time with. I’ve always loved animals and had adopted in the past, so animal rescue seemed like the perfect fit. I contacted DPA! and learned they were growing quickly and needed help on their adoption team. Soon after joining Adoptline, I took in my first foster and have fostered over 40 cats and dogs since!
What are you most passionate about at DPA?
I am most passionate about the mission of DPA! – to eliminate the killing of companion animals. On any given day, there are many, many animals facing euthanization in Dallas. Fostering these animals in need is the most rewarding experience, although not always the easiest. It is simply amazing what love and patience and compassion will do for an animal. And nothing compares to finding the perfect family for them to join. The Foster Rep role has allowed me to help other Fosters by offering my experiences and answering any questions they have. And I enjoy working on the Adoption team because we review applications to make sure the animals are going to fantastic homes and also help find the adopters their perfect matches. Although we all have our own roles at DPA!, we are all working towards the same mission.
What are some words of wisdom to new DPA Volunteers?
