Volunteer Appreciation Month: Amy Huang

Amy Huang, part of the Volun-TEEN program at North Shore Animal League America, didn’t just put in her six months of time for high school service credits, she loved every minute while she was here with the animals. She loved it so much that she continued to volunteer past her initial commitment and asked to conduct her senior experience here as well.

Tom Burke stands in front of the training room at North Shore Animal League America and distributes the handouts for the volunteer dog walking class. At the same time, he and Maria D’Agostino talk about their experiences with the dogs on the Port Washington, NY campus. Their smiles light up the room.

Volunteer Appreciation Month: Jennifer and Arianna Levine

Every other Friday, without fail, Jennifer and Arianna Levine can be seen selecting puppies at North Shore Animal League America for their visits to the Queens Centers for Progress as part of our Shelter Pet Outreach Team (SPOT). They say that they wouldn’t want to spend these two days any other way — they get to bring puppies to people who need their warmth and comfort and brighten their day.

Volunteer Appreciation Month: Jill Marcus

Jill Marcus first thought about volunteering five years ago when her last cat passed away. Jill felt that she wanted to put her “animal energy into helping homeless cats and getting them adopted” rather than having more pets of her own. Today, Jill makes a real difference by spending quality time with our rescued cats.

Volunteer Appreciation Month: Kathy DiLello

Kathy has a need to “nurture.” As a nurse, she’d worked in a pediatric office for many years and now she’s a technician with Northwell Health®, New York State’s largest health system. She knew she wanted to help medically needy dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens when she applied to be a volunteer at North Shore Animal League America in 2016.

Volunteer Appreciation Month: Debby Rightmyer

“I take a lot of pride in working with the dogs who need it the most. Since many of these animals are with us for significant periods of time, I have the opportunity to build strong relationships with some of them. This allows me to teach them important skills that will give them a better quality of life in the long run.” - Debby Rightmyer, Volunteer since 2005.
