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.
We lost a wonderful Volunteer recently. Carl volunteered with HSSC doing what he loved for almost 3 years, which was over 700+ hours. He loved bringing smiles to every dog in our shelter and we truly appreciate the time we had with him. Carl was always smiling and telling jokes for all of the staff. He really liked to help with matchmaking in adoptions and we all loved him dearly. Carl would do anything for anyone or any dog. He had many friends, was an Army Veteran, and even walked his friends dogs daily who couldn’t walk them themselves. The first photo is how we will always remember him, making sure every dog received a treat, with kind words, and with a smile.
