My husband and I began volunteering for this organization about a year ago. Let me start off by saying over 10 years ago my family and I had a dog who fell very ill, financially we weren’t in the position get him the help he needed, or even so much as find out what exactly was wrong with him. After weeks of trying animal shelters, who without any evaluation suggested euthanasia, my mother finally stumbled across a true angel, Elaine. She completely went out of her way to help us get him evaluated and even drove out to pick him up from our home. The sad truth was, he did need to be euthanized. Elaine however, swooped in as the superwoman she is, and took care of it all for us. So here I am, over 10 years later, and still cant find enough ways to thank Elaine, and everyone at Animal Life Savers, for all they do for these helpless animals. My husband and I use our only free time to volunteer and bond over some of the things we love most. We both work very demanding jobs and over 50 hours a week, but always make time to lend a helping hand by working the cat room once weekly and fostering sick and older cats in need. I know we probably couldn’t touch half as many lives as Elaine has, but we will forever be eternally grateful for her kindness and generosity. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, to everyone at Animal Life Savers and everyone who has contributed to our success over the years!
