Volunteerism – The Cornerstone of Our Organization

Carolina Canines would not be who we are today without our volunteers. One special volunteer, Stephen LeQuire has been featured recently in the Wilmington Start News for his volunteer work with the Carolina Canines for Veterans program at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune Brig (www.starnewsonline.com/article/20081220/ARTICLES/812202989), but there are many volunteers that make our mission possible.

At this time of year for giving thanks, we would like to thank the many volunteers that give every day to help others in need. From our foster families committing to raising and training the service dogs, to the advanced trainers working to ready a dog for their partner, the 63 active therapy teams that visit people in our community’s facilities, our office helpers, and Board of Director and Advisory Council, we cannot do the work we do and provide the services we do without each and every one of you.

Thank you to all the volunteers that make our organization what it is. Merry Christmas!

Won’t you be a part of the work we do in our community in 2009?
