Cathy Potter is the very deserving Animal Hero of the Month for July at Alaqua Animal Refuge. Potter works two full days a week in the “SVU” unit for smaller dogs, some with medical issues.

Potter has volunteered with Alaqua for just over two years and has no plans to leave. She truly enjoys working with the animals and being a part of their development, rehabilitation, socialization, and healing. She cleans the houses and kennels, socializes the pups, gives them tons of love, feeds them, and makes sure they are safe, healthy, and happy in their environment.

Potter also takes them for field trips to the park, helps with the laundry at Alaqua, volunteers at special events, and has been a foster mom (a foster fail). She works with a team of volunteers who work alongside the staff to create a safe haven for the smaller, more vulnerable dogs.

We thank Cathy from the bottom of our hearts for everything she does for Alaqua! We couldn’t do what we do without our team of dedicated volunteers.
