Volunteer of the Month

Danyela Aviles

1. When did you start volunteering at the shelter?

I started volunteering in May.

2. What’s your favorite part of volunteering?

My favorite part has to be seeing how happy a walk makes a dog.

3. If you could give one piece of advice about volunteering, what would it be?

Best advice I could give is start now, do it whenever you can. There is nothing but love at the Mendocino Coast Humane Society.

4. Why are you so passionate about the work we do?

Once I came in to the orientation I was blown away by how well kept, loved, and housed the animals are.

5. Any special stories you'd like to share?

A special story is how I am deeply a cat person but when I met Cassie 7 year old retriever mix I knew she had to come home with me (but of course her favorite person is my partner).
