Volunteer of the Month: Lynn Kennedy

Julia D Volunteer of the Month

Lynn Kennedy first came to know about Last Hope when the family adopted a rabbit from us. She was a stay-at-home mom at the time and decided to fill her time with volunteer work.

Along with her daughter, Elizabeth (Izzy), she has fostered many cats and kittens with special medical needs, cats that need socialization, and pregnant cats. She also does a few cat care shifts a week at the Adoption Center which entails cleaning litter boxes, cleaning the cat area, laundry, dishes, feeding/watering, administering medication as needed, etc.

Lynn has also taken on the big task of painting the entire inside of the Adoption Center! She also has helped with paperwork, fundraising, home visits, open houses, giving tours of the Center, transporting cats, intakes, bathing, running the kids’ program PAWSitive Adventures, and even bringing pizza to the volunteers working on tough hoarding cases.

Volunteering at Last Hope makes her feel like she’s making a difference. “You can see the look in the animals’ faces – they are appreciative. They want love and I have lots of love to give! You are part of a family at Last Hope,” she says.

As you can see, Lynn is a big part of what goes on at Last Hope and we are so lucky to have a volunteer like her!
