My mother and I adopted our dog Sugaree from Last Hope animal shelter in October, 2011. A few months later, my mom began volunteering there. Come May, when I finished my semester of classes I began my adventures at Last Hope. Now, every Tuesday night I volunteer at the shelter. A normal shift for me starts at 7pm and ends at 9pm. I walk the dogs, give them water, and am always sure to socialize them. This means playtime, pets, and lots of love! Volunteering at the shelter is extremely rewarding, and I am glad to give back to them since they gave me such a perfect pet!
