The Humane Society of Sarasota County's volunteers generously give their time and talents, which enables HSSC to continue to save lives and expand our services for our community. With so many resources required to provide care for our animals, it would be impossible to fulfill our mission as the area’s premier no-kill shelter without our volunteers.
What superb timing to have someone with Diane’s expertise and skill join our volunteer team, just when we are trying to expand volunteer duties for customer service. She has decades of experience in every aspect of administrative support and she exudes a gracious warmth that is so helpful when dealing with the wide range of personalities visiting HSSC.
Although her first geographic love is Seattle, WA., she relocated to Sarasota in 1995 to help care for her parents. She lost her mother in 2008, but her dad just celebrated his 101st birthday and is still loving life. Diane’s family first discovered the wealth of joys in Sarasota when her grandparents made this area their vacation destination many years ago.
Her lifelong love of dogs has included ownership of rottweilers, border collies, shepherds, dachshunds, and at least one foster failure. Her “Maverick” is a pit mix who came into her life at two weeks of age and now, at seven months and 50lbs., is still a work in progress and the puppy love of her life.
When you get the opportunity, pop up to adoptions to say hello to Diane.
