Congrats to Megan Dumas for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Wells Fargo
Honoree Category: Animals & Environment
Why Nominated: We are honored to have the opportunity to recognize the great volunteer work Megan has done for Barks of Love. She spent time at local shelters visiting and caretaking dogs who need homes. She bought toys and treats and took dog’s out to play to escape their concrete jungles. She drove around Los Angeles County and Orange County completing paperwork and evaluation on dogs for 2 different shelters in Southern California. On weekends, she would be running around town picking up foster dogs and transporting them to various places. She is also actively involved in adoption events all over Orange County and Los Angeles County raising funds not only for Barks of Love but other charitable organizations such as Susan G. Komen, Relay for Life, Miracles for Children and Race for the Rescue. As a board member, she used leadership skills from work to lead board meetings, replied to thousands of emails asking for help to re-home or save thousands of dogs across the country. She successfully recruited new volunteers and gave presentations on what rescue is about to 3 local businesses. She spearheaded a fundraiser to raise money for a litter of puppies who were hospitalized due to parvo. She inspired a group of women who are passionate about quilting and animals and now help the community by making bandanas to raise funds for the rescue.
