I asked Good Mews volunteers and supporters to share a few words about why they support our shelter. Lisa has been a Good Mews volunteer since 2010. In fact, today is her two year anniversary. Happy Anniversary, Lisa!
I was just recently asked, “Why do you volunteer at Good Mews?”
I didn’t realize it would be such a difficult question!
Simply put, I love all animals and want to do what I can to help them.
The intense love I have for helping animals is harder to put into words. I have limited financial resources to help them, so that’s out. What I can do is give my time & love. I make a difference by caring and loving the cats at Good Mews. “Clean & Feed” is my favorite chore because I get to know each kitty and love on them (or not, if that’s their preference!). I get to help provide the kitties’ basic, everyday needs. I believe the cats recognize that we are there because we love them and want only what’s best for them. It’s a commitment to something above and beyond my daily existence. ~ Not to mention, there’s nothing like a deep purr, a head-butt, or paw reaching out to keep you petting them! You know they appreciate you!
