The Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Soci­ety — Fri­day Har­bor is hap­py to announce Dave Pretz as the APS-FH Vol­un­teer of the Month for August 2021. 

Dave is a long-time islander and has been vol­un­teer­ing for the APS-FH shel­ter since 2019.  He is one of our val­ued dog walk­ers that comes in con­sis­tent­ly every week.  Being a dog walk­er, Dave vol­un­teers his time to help shel­ter dogs get out of their usu­al envi­ron­ment — giv­ing them qual­i­ty time, exer­cise, and spe­cial one-on-one atten­tion, which great­ly enrich­es their lives while they wait to be adopted. 

He often pays spe­cial atten­tion to the dogs that have been here longer than oth­ers.  It’s not uncom­mon to find Dave grav­i­tat­ing to the biggest dog in the shelter! 

Dave is a kind soul that cares deeply about the dogs, and it shows.  Thank you, Dave, for mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the lives of shel­ter ani­mals. Your ded­i­ca­tion and hard work are deeply appreciated.
