She became a volunteer with Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet on July 14, 2011 as the IN Foster Coordination Liaison.
When asked why she does it, Carol responded with:
“Nearly four years ago, I found out about Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet through an internet search when I was looking for an opportunity to foster dogs. I’ve always loved pets and the combination of supporting the military AND helping pets was too good to pass up. Since I retired, I have time to give back in ways I couldn’t while I was working. Through Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet I have met so many wonderful volunteers, foster families and soldiers. I was able to foster Jasper, a loving and energetic Dalmatian, as well as coordinate numerous foster arrangements throughout Indiana and Illinois. I am currently serving on the National Support Team as the National Volunteer Director, too. Volunteering to help our military service members and their pets is a great “feel good” opportunity. I love to see the reunion photos. It always brings tears to my eyes.”
Thank you Carol for your time, dedication and passion towards our mission. You are a gem to work with and we are very appreciative for your hard work.
