volunteer of the month

What can we say about Jere? Well, he is caring, hardworking, gentle, dependable and an extremely valuable member of our team at Cherryland Humane Society. Over the past couple of months, he has torn out smelly, stained carpet from our offices, then scraped the glue off of the floors, repaired several dog kennels after getting donated materials or paying for them himself. He has gathered donations from sales reps and co-workers at Ace Hardware and is always thinking of more ways to raise money. Jere has also helped with practically every fundraiser or event since walking through CHS’ doors on March 23rd, 2017, and occasionally brings his fiancé, Sarah, to help out as well! The list of fundraisers or events Jere has helped include several “Pour for More” and “Paint-A-Pup” venues, signing up for two, three hour shifts, of our “Cherry Festival Parking Lot” fundraiser and walked a dog in the Heritage Parade with us!

Jere has secured the healthy futures of countless dogs and cats brought into our shelter. With his skills, compassion, and love for animals, CHS has surely benefited from Jere joining its team.

Thank you so much Jere! Please congratulate this wonderful man for all of his help, over only a few months, while being a part of the Cherryland Humane Society’s volunteer community!
