A friend introduced me to MARS because she knew I was looking for another dog. She used to foster with them and thought it would be something I would love and she was right. It’s a lot of work but the reward is amazing and so fulfilling. It is hard to say goodbye to your fosters but knowing that YOU personally helped save their lives makes it all worth it. I also wanted to something that gets me out of the house more for the winter so I trained in the adoption center and I absolutely love it! I get to see all the new families meet their new pet for the first time and be a part of the pets finding their happily ever after. I also get to meet and work with the great community of other fosters and volunteers that work with MARS. I have learned so much and this will be something that I will do the rest of my life. Jeanne
I began volunteering with MARS a little over a year ago. In that year, I have met many wonderful animals and even more wonderful people. I chose MARS with the obvious intent of helping dogs but was pleasantly surprised by all the meaningful human connections as well. Everyone from the staff to the other volunteers are so friendly and dedicated. I'm at MARS weekly and I love every minute of it! Lexi
