How did you get involved with volunteering at DPA? I got involved with DPA after a friend of mine told me about the organization. Since then, we’ve had two more friends sign up to foster!
What are you most passionate about at DPA? I’m passionate about the mission, of course, but also about identifying and designing process improvements that will enable the organization to grow more quickly and seamlessly to impact the lives of more animals.
What are some words of wisdom to new DPA Volunteers? Try to think about how your strengths and talents could be translated into your work at DPA. Even if it doesn’t seem like your volunteer role has anything to do with your day job or hobbies, you may end up finding the perfect opportunity to use those skills to help improve or create something great for the organization!
Give us a fun fact about you! I have a one-eyed cat named Pirate who I foster-failed after taking in his litter when they were babies! He’s always making me laugh and I he’s the coolest cat around–he has an Instagram account to prove it! @PirateTheOneEyedCat
