It’s Volunteer Appreciation Week!

Volunteers play an integral role in society. They are often the backbone of an organization; giving their time and talents selflessly, tucking away outside stress while they focus on helping others. They also give far more than they ever take. Volunteers are the most valuable currency to an organization there is.

At Companion Protect, we frequently work alongside volunteers in the animal sheltering/rescue community whose organizations are offering our pet insurance, and/or are utilizing our shelter management software (Companion Connect) to better track and manage their workflow. We truly recognize the impact these volunteers have on both the humans and—especially—animals they serve. We can probably speak for our shelter partners when we say that without the help of volunteers, shelters would not have the ability to impact their communities and animals in the way they do.

In honor of Volunteer Appreciation Month/Week, we reached out to our animal shelter partners to nominate one of their volunteers who altruistically gives to help pets in need. We hope you’ll join us in giving a virtual round of applause to these seven amazing shelter volunteers.

“Volunteering is at the very core of being human. No one has made it through life without someone else’s help.” – Heather French Henry
