Volunteer Spotlight Spotlight On:

Steve Niren

Began volunteering:

2014

Department:

Dog Walker

Pets at home: Steve has a 30-year history of having Great Pyrenees and white German shepherds, but his last dog has passed away and he now lives in a condo. Two elderly cats are his companions these days. Favorite part of volunteering: “When I moved here full-time from Minnesota, I realized I missed the interaction of animals. They make me feel connected, so I decided to volunteer. My sister has been a volunteer at the HSBC for many years so that’s how I ended up here.” What the animals say: “When we see Steve coming, we get so excited! Thanks to him we get to walk and run outside, smell all kinds of interesting things, and pretend we’re lucky dogs just out for a stroll, with a nice home and someone to love us. He also gives us lots of pets and always has nice things to say to us that make our tails wag. We love Steve the Dog Walker!”

Interested in volunteering? We’re especially in need of dog walkers, adoption ambassadors and customer service volunteers. Call Lacey at 954.266.6814 to learn more and/or to sign up for our next orientation.
