Meet Maura Shea, our October Volunteer of the Month!
When did you start
volunteering at PAWS?
in January 2014
What jobs/roles have
you performed at PAWS?
I’ve been a
cat core care volunteer. I’ve also
filled in as shift leader once or twice but that was unofficial.
What do you currently
do as a volunteer?
I do cat
care on Saturday mornings.
Why do you volunteer
Claire (Pictured with Maura) got me started. She loves animals
and needs 30 hours a year of community service for the Delta Program. She loves dogs, but as her designated
chaperone, I said that we had to work with cats.
When you’re not at
PAWS, what do you like to do with your time?
film production at Penn State takes up a lot of my time. My husband Rod and I also try to find time to
do our own creative projects. I also
like to watch films, hang out and travel with my family.
What do you like best
about being a PAWS volunteer? What do you find to be the most rewarding?
We have no
pets at home, because we just aren’t home enough, so volunteering gives me much
needed pet time. It’s also a great group
of people. It’s been fun getting to know
people outside of work.
If someone asked you
why they should volunteer at PAWS, what answer would you give?
give a little time or a lot and either way you’ll get a lot back — appreciation
from the animals and the people!
