McKenna has been volunteering with APS-FH since March of 2022. As a student at Friday Harbor High School, we admire her for making the time out of her busy schedule to come and help the shelter animals. McKenna originally started as a cleaning volunteer: helping fold mountains of laundry, washing stacks of dishes, and cleaning travel crates. It wasn’t long before the APS staff realized how versatile and capable she was as a volunteer, and she was promoted to helping with various dog enrichment activities, such as taking dogs on “sniffari walks” around the shelter property, hide and seek treat walks, and cuddling canines in the shelter Enrichment Room.
McKenna is one of shelter dogs, Sable’s favorite volunteers. Her eyes light up when McKenna arrives at the shelter for her shift because she knows they will be playing her favorite game of “flirt pole” in the yard with likely a good cuddle session to follow.
Volunteers like McKenna are invaluable to the shelter pets and staff. She offers assistance with cleaning chores AND pampers the dogs. Thank you, McKenna, for making a difference in the lives of shelter animals. Your dedication and hard work are deeply appreciated.
