Volunteer Spotlight: Nadine

Nadine may be new to Pet Haven’s dog foster program but she has followed Pet Haven for years, as a Pet Haven cat adopter. Nadine jumped right into her new volunteer role by offering to take in a senior Australian Shepherd mix who was a newly-diagnosed diabetic. Along the journey of getting Jackson’s glucose levels regulated, Nadine has been a stellar advocate.
