Did you know Ottawa Paw Pantry is 100% volunteer based and this includes our two leaders?
This month our leadership team decided to surprise Laura and Natalie with by this honour. Everyone here at the Ottawa Paw Pantry wants to give a huge thank you to the women who brought us all together and work tirelessly to grow the organization they care so deeply about: Laura and Natalie !
Laura is the brain behind the Ottawa Paw Pantry, in seeing the need for pet food support in Ottawa she founded our wonderful organization about 3 years ago! Her endless passion and love for animals shines through in the work she does whether its chairing a meeting, writing a blog post, designing our website or being a fierce foster dog mom.
Natalie goes above and beyond to ensure the well-being of both our furry and human clients. She is aware of the challenges that some of our clients may be facing allowing her to provide non-judgemental, friendly and helpful support. Natalie has been instrumental in creating clarity around our policies and procedures, allowing us to thrive as an organization.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Ottawa Paw Pantry. Dedicated volunteers like Laura and Natalie embody the spirit of community that our organization is all about. For that, and many more reasons, Laura and Natalie, you are our volunteer of the month!
