Volunteer Spotlight
February 12, 2016

Last year, Alexis was looking around for an opportunity to volunteer at the Pet Adoption Center, but nothing t her schedule too well besides of ce work. Luckily she was able to get in to volunteer at the Kitten Nursery and was a great help there during Kitten Season 2015! Alexis still volunteers in the offices with us during the off-season, and her computer skills have been an invaluable help keeping our Volunteer Department running at full speed. We are so thankful to have such great and multi-talented volunteers like Alexis on our team!

BFAS: What is your favorite part about volunteering?

BFAS: What do you do for fun outside of volunteering?

BFAS: Do you have a favorite adoption from the adoption center?

AR: Vanilla Ice is my favorite! We all fell in love with Vanilla Ice at the Kitten Nursery last year, and I got the chance to see him when he came in to get neutered. I got to meet his adoptive mom and share a picture of him when he was a baby. She was so excited to see it, so that was very cool.

BFAS: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
