Volunteer of the Month: Dot Sheldon

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

Fosters Jim and Dwight

Dot Sheldon has been volunteering with Last Hope for about five years and during that time she has been very dedicated and a volunteer we can depend upon. She got involved with Last Hope after hearing a co-worker talk about the organization and asking how she could get involved. That co-worker is now her foster lead.

Previous Foster, Bubbles

Dot has fostered many dogs, helped at a few Barks & Brew events, helped out at some adoption events, and even played Santa one year at Petco for pictures!

When asked why she likes volunteering for Last Hope she said, “I feel like I am making a difference, one or two dogs at s time.  It is such a great feeling when you see one of your fosters go to a furever home and just know it’s a great fit.”

Foster Failure, Bella

In addition to volunteering her time for the animals of Last Hope, Dot is hoping to help raise awareness about the weakness of Iowa’s laws regarding the care of companion animals. She says that everyone needs to contact their representatives in government to let them know the laws protecting animals are unacceptable and need to be improved.

Thank you, Dot, for EVERYTHING you do for Last Hope! You are a valuable volunteer and foster mom.
