Greenhill's Volunteer and Foster Newsletter
Wade Watts hit the ground running when he became a Greenhill volunteer in January of 2015. In only 4 months, Wade has contributed almost 100 hours of service. Starting as a dog walker, Wade is now a dog-walker trainer and helps new volunteers to learn how to walk dogs.
Now retired after spending 20 years as a local chiropractor, Wade spends much of his time continuing to help living things. “I really enjoy seeing the dogs progress to eventually find their forever homes. I have learned a lot about the dogs from the kennel staff who are never too busy to answer questions or help with a task.”
One can usually find Wade out walking dogs in the early mornings, before most staff members come in to work. “Being out on the trails in the morning is great. It is quiet and the dogs seem to calm more quickly. We get to see birds and bunnies. Sometimes we see hawks and even eagles.”
Although he has been with Greenhill for a short time, Wade has become a valuable and dependable volunteer and understands how special his work is. “I have found that dog walking has helped me find some peace in this chaotic world and hopefully I can bring a bit of that to the dogs I walk. Volunteering at Greenhill has been a privilege. ”
Thanks so much for your service, Wade!!!
