Amy has volunteered at Furry Friends since October 2022. The retired RN had seen a story about us on the news and knew that she wanted to help. She used to volunteer every Wednesday and Friday but had to stop once the school year started since she’s currently a substitute teacher.

Wow what a great and challenging year Furry Friends has had! I will share our many amazing accomplishments in 2023 in this letter. First, I would like to send out a very heartfelt THANK YOU to all our supporters, volunteers, sponsors, and donors! Together with our Board of Directors, Leadership, Staff, and YOU, we have made a difference in so many lives and in many cases, we have saved lives! Give yourself the credit you deserve!

Roberta had volunteered with the Best Friends Animal Rescue in Utah when her family lived there. But after moving to Washington in March 2020 (just as the pandemic broke), she looked around for a local organization. Since Furry Friends was listed on the Best Friends website as a companion organization, she promptly checked us out — and here she is!

James, who has now been volunteering with Furry Friends for a year, got involved when both of his cats sadly passed away within months of each other. Uncertain as to whether or not he was ready for any new cats, he missed that special cat energy and became a volunteer instead.

Jaimie began volunteering with Furry Friends in 2019. She had been looking for volunteer opportunities in the community and came across us during an online search. She started with one Halfway House shift a week, then two, and then joined the Board of Directors, doing grants writing and fundraiser events. Ultimately, she not only became President, she also acted as Treasurer for awhile.
