Meet Laci and Kimberly, our August Volunteers of the Month

Mother - Daughter duo Kimberly and Laci joined our volunteer team this past April, and immediately knew they wanted to spend their time volunteering in our Critter Country. Every weekend this team of super volunteers is here cleaning the rabbit runs and spending time socializing with our littlest of adoptable kiddos. Whether they are elbows deep in newspaper or enjoying the sun with a rabbit in the Bun Run, these two always have a smile on their face. Their love of small animals and volunteering is infectious and has been a great bonding experience.
