July 2021, Jelena Kyle!
Jelena has been volunteering at NHA for about 3 years now, and she has truly gone above and beyond since she started here. She does anything and everything at the shelter from dog care, cat care, leading events, helping out in the vet clinic, training new volunteers, admin help, fostering, and anything else you could possibly think of! Basically, if we need her, she’s there – even if it’s just greeting you with a smile and an iced coffee in times of stress. The running joke at the shelter is that we should set up a kennel for Jelena because she essentially lives here – it’s honestly not a bad idea at this point. Jelena has such a huge heart and desire to make a difference for animals and people, and we are so lucky to have her share that with us. Jelena – nothing I could write could convey how much you are loved and valued by all of us here. Thank you for choosing to be our teammate, friend, and family for these last 3 years. You are truly one of a kind!
