Volunteer of the Month – October 2017
Stephen Parkinson began volunteering Sept. 25, 2016 as a cleaner/socializer in the cattery inside our partner location at PetSmart on Chad Drive. Since then he has volunteered consistently (and often!) in a variety of capacities both in the cattery, for special events and behind the scenes. We can always count on this cheerful guy to say “Sure, I can do that!” when action is needed. He often steps up for special projects in addition to being an adoption counselor, cleaner/socializer and foster. He builds and distributes the monthly SignUpGenius web-based cattery volunteer schedules for PetSmart North and Petco and this coming December he will co-coordinate Santa Pet Photos fundraiser. On the second Sunday of the month he attends the volunteer CRAN Board of Directors’ monthly meetings, and . . . he works full time! At home in Junction City, Stephen and his wife Liz provide a loving home to 17 rescue cats in preparation for their future plans to build and maintain a rescue group in Roseburg. Thank you Stephen for your good heart and great energy in support of Cat Rescue & Adoption Network.
