This month we feature our wonderful foster volunteer Diane. Since joining our foster network in February of 2014, Diane has consistently showed her enthusiasm for supporting SAAV’s mission by always offering to help, quickly jumping in to love the animals in our care, and supporting the clients we serve through her heartfelt foster updates. Thank you, Diane!

What four words would people who know you use to describe you?
Hard working, loyal, dependable and an animal lover.

What do you love about Wisconsin?
I love the changing of the seasons and seeing all the beautiful colors of fall, and the winter white snow as it settles in.

Do you have anything exciting planned for 2016?
Yes I do! My oldest Daughter just got married in April 2016 now my youngest Daughter is also getting married in July 2017 so there is a lot to be done, but it is pretty exciting to see the joy in their eyes.

What motivates you to work with SAAV? 
It is all about the animals. I know I can make a difference in their lives and I am devoted to helping them in any way I can. I think we need stricter laws against animal abuse, but until we have that I will be here to help them. My heart aches for the homeless or mistreated animals. I can make a difference and I know I am good at it because animals are my true love.
