Danielle joined GTHS as a co-op student in 2013. She did two semesters of co-op with GTHS and instantly fell in love with the animals, the staff, the volunteers and the atmosphere. After her co-op ended, she stayed on as a volunteer and now volunteer on average 35 hours a week.
“I joined GTHS when I was just 17 years old and now being 20 and spending most of my days volunteering here, I feel like I grew up here and this amazing place is now a part of me. From teaching me valuable life skills to everything about animals, The GTHS and everyone in it has truly made me the person I am today. I love being a part of the team, helping out in every capacity that I can and finding our animals homes! GTHS is a beyond amazing place that I feel proud to have grown up in.”
