APS-FH shares some kind words about their vol­un­teer of the month.

The Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Soci­ety — Fri­day Har­bor is pleased to announce McKen­na Clark as the APS-FH Vol­un­teer of the Month for August.

McKen­na has been vol­un­teer­ing with APS-FH since March of 2022. As a stu­dent at Fri­day Har­bor High School, we admire her for mak­ing the time out of her busy sched­ule to come and help the shel­ter ani­mals. McKen­na orig­i­nal­ly start­ed as a clean­ing vol­un­teer, help­ing fold moun­tains of laun­dry, wash­ing stacks of dish­es, and clean­ing trav­el crates. It wasn’t long before the APS staff real­ized how ver­sa­tile and capa­ble she was as a vol­un­teer, and she was pro­mot­ed to help­ing with var­i­ous dog enrich­ment activ­i­ties, such as tak­ing dogs on “snif­fari walks” around the shel­ter prop­er­ty, hide-and-seek treat walks, and cud­dling canines in the shel­ter Enrich­ment Room.

McKen­na is one of shel­ter dog Sable’s favorite vol­un­teers. Her eyes light up when McKen­na arrives at the shel­ter for her shift because she knows they will be play­ing her favorite game of “flirt pole” in the yard with like­ly a good cud­dle ses­sion to follow.

Vol­un­teers like McKen­na are invalu­able to the shel­ter pets and staff. She offers assis­tance with clean­ing chores and pam­pers the dogs. Thank you, McKen­na, for mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the lives of shel­ter ani­mals. Your ded­i­ca­tion and hard work are deeply appreciated.

APS-FH has numer­ous vol­un­teer­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties. If you are inter­est­ed in help­ing, vis­it our web­site to learn more about our vol­un­teer pro­gram.
