Volunteer of the Month: Kiley Eastwood

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

Kiley has been a volunteer with Last Hope since January 2017. She first signed up to foster because she wanted to help animals in need and she recently lost a family dog but they weren’t ready to adopt. She fostered two dogs in the first eight months; one of which was a “foster failure” meaning Kiley ended up adopting her.

Mona, the foster failure, came from Houston with heartworm and two bad hips. Kiley fostered her through all of her treatments and decided she just couldn’t let her go and they adopted her in September 2017.

After she adopted Mona, Kiley decided not to foster anymore because she didn’t have space. At that time she started volunteering as a foster lead. Foster leads have foster homes assigned to them and they assist the foster homes with a variety of things and make sure things run smoothly.

Kiley also processes applications for adoptions and foster homes, has recently started helping with transports, and has dipped her toes into the intake process. Kiley says, “I recently began fostering a senior dog (who needs extra space, anyway?!).”

She loves volunteering for Last Hope because it gives her a sense of purpose and helps her feel like she’s doing something to help change the world. “I love being able to help out this great organization and I think it’s a beautiful thing we get to do every single day by helping these amazing animals.”

Well, we think YOU’RE pretty amazing, Kiley! Thank you for all you do for Last Hope!
