December Volunteer of the Month: Lynn Kennedy

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

Here is what Lynn Kennedy said about her experience volunteering for Last Hope…

My family first heard of Last Hope Animal Rescue when my daughter wanted a rabbit. We knew we wanted a rescue bunny so we found Toby through Last Hope’s website. We quickly fell in love with him and adopted him. We then lost one of our cats and knew we wanted another one to keep our other cat company. We came to an adoption event held at the shelter and found two!  After adopting them I knew I wanted to be involved with Last Hope so I signed up for training and was hooked!

I started volunteering September 11th 2017. Some of the things I have been able to do at Last Hope are cleaning/feeding in the mornings and at night, taken many cats to therapy and vet appointments, helped at open houses, transported cats to Waterloo for open houses, picked up pallets of food for delivery,  and last but not least I have been lucky to foster three amazing cats.
My foster cats are Ethel – who was found in a dumpster and needing some TLC and a quiet place to get well (who is adopted now), Josie who was one of our shelter cats who got sick and needs a quiet room to get better in, and King who was a Critter Crusaders animal either hit by a car or kicked and had two broken hips. He has been with us almost eight weeks and we now plan on adopting him as one of our own cats.
As a stay at home mom I have always volunteered from Vacation Bible School, to high school youth group, to PTA and girl scout leader. So now to have Last Hope and all their animals in my life I feel truly blessed!
We are lucky to have Lynn as a dedicated volunteer! We know we can depend on her to help out where it’s needed.
