  1. Lisa, our foster program would not be the same without you. Thank you for caring for those too young to care for themselves. And thanks for that awesome foster poem at last year’s volunteer and staff party.

  2. Lisa is awesome! In addition to the foster care she provides she is here often on her lunch breaks socializing our animals. Her dedication is evident in all that she does. And she always has a smile on her face and is just down right pleasant to be around!

  3. Lisa is the best foster Mommy out there. If I was an underage animal I would hope I would be lucky enough to find my way into her home. Thank you Lisa for helping rescue 100s of animals. We couldn’t save nearly as many without you.

  4. Thank you for your endless dedication to helping those who need help the most. It takes a very special person like you to always have a home filled with pets requiring special love and attention, including bottle feeding every few hours that keep you from getting a good night of rest. Kudos. You are one awesome volunteer!

  5. Lisa, we are thrilled to hear about you being honored– so well deserved. Many of us have good intentions…you have good results. Thanks for the care you give to the lucky animals you serve and for your quiet determination to make a difference.

  6. CONGRATULATIONS LISA! You graciously and willingly share your heart for the most needy animals giving them loving, quality care. Most folks wouldn’t do what you do if they were paid and yet you happily VOLENTEER HUNDREDS OF HOURS! The world is a much better place because of you LISA!!! How truly wonderful to see you honored!

  7. HOORAY! So proud of you, Lisa, and all you do to give these precious little ones the hope of a loving home. It’s great to see that the Irvine Animal Care Center realizes what a “gem” they have in you. Congratulations!

  8. Congratulations Big Sis!! I don’t know of anyone more dedicated or deserving. Those California animals are lucky to have you. You have a special talent, and are very unselfish about sharing it. Thanks for always being a great example in giving of your time and care.

  9. I’ve been to Lisa’s house quite a few times just to play with puppies and kittens she was fostering at the time, but that’s a far cry from all the hours of loving care she’s put in for the abandoned animal moms and babies lucky enough to come into her home. Lisa has a wonderful way with them and is so deserving of this award!

  10. Lisa – You are an AMAZING volunteer. Your work with our dogs and cats is truly life saving. As a foster mom, you have helped to save so many lives. Connecting us with your employer has also helped countless animals. Every time I see you, you always have a smile on your face and it always makes me smile. We are honored to have you as a volunteer. Keep saving lives, you are GREAT at it. Thank you for all that you do.
