The End of National Volunteer Week

This is the last issue of this year’s National Volunteer Week newsletter. I just want to say a big thank you to everyone for all the work that you do! We have been able to help so many people and touch so many lives through your passion and dedication to this worthy cause and we hope you continue to support Carolina Canines through your time and efforts! Thanks again!

Foster Puppy Parent: Lori Brinkley is currently training Tamara, a beautiful golden retriever. She is the breeder of Tamara and over the years have donated a number of puppies to become service dogs in training. Lori is dedicated to the success of Tamara, and wants to see her succeed into being a service dog for someone. It is evident in the hours she spends working with her. Lori is also a dedicated Carolina Canines for Therapy Team. Thanks for being such a great ambassador Lori!

Carolina Canines for Therapy Team: LaceyAnn Struve is a wonderful Carolina Canines for Therapy Team. She is very active in the Paws for Reading program at Wrightsboro Elementary school in Castle Hayne. Paws for Reading is a program developed to assist children reading below grade level. She has been very active with the Therapy program for many years now and thanks to her dedication we hope to continue her work at Wrightsboro. Thanks for all the great work you do LaceyAnn!

Overall Volunteer: Pam and Glen Adair have trained a service dog that was recently placed. They were able to witness the placement of Conway with his new client. Even after the placement, they have continued to stay active with Carolina Canines by attending our many functions and fundraising activities. Their passion for the many programs of Carolina Canines shines through and we are so happy to say that they are a dedicated volunteer of Carolina Canines for Service.
