VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT: Meet Our Treasure Hunter

 Meet Barb ….

 Hometown:  Native Chicagoan

 How Many Fur-babies call you Mom:  4; 1 dog (Chloe) and 3 cats (Whisper, Elsa and Anna)

 Volunteer Tasks: Fundraiser Coordinator, Meet & Greets, Transport and Home checks

 Your 1st Rescue Experience: My 1st rescue experience started at CACC. I was transporting a dog from there to his foster home.  It felt like I was relieving him from his death sentence. The pup I was transporting seemed to be saying, as I closed my car door and drove away, “Drive, Drive!”

 What Makes Rescue So Rewarding to You:  What makes rescue so rewarding to me is the effect I had on the dog or cat after they have been settled in their new home and they couldn’t be happier (and loved).  From seeing just the physical appearance change from a simple groom and receiving proper vet care to the most important: the loving touch of a foster home.  Knowing I had a part of that to help that dog/cat is what drives me to continue rescuing and being part of an Animal Rescue.
