Volunteer of the Month: Kelly Roedema

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

We are honoring Kelly Roedema as our Volunteer of the Month for March! Kelly has been volunteering with Last Hope since late 2016 after talking to her neighbors who foster for Last Hope. Her primary duties focus on the dogs at the Adoption Center: Feed, water, clean kennels, play, etc. She has helped at adoption events as well.

When asked why she likes volunteering for Last Hope Kelly replied, “Their name says it all.  Last Hope doesn’t turn down pets because they’re going to be difficult to adopt out or expensive to care for.  Also, I’ve made some true friends in my years volunteering, and it’s great to befriend people who have the same passion about animals that you do.”

Kelly admits it can be heartbreaking work but says the dogs are her inspiration. She says seeing a dog that was afraid, blossom into a confident pup because of a little love…there’s nothing like it.

Thank you for all you do, Kelly. And the dogs at the Center appreciate all you do, too!
