Volunteer Recognition Program (Congratulations Lenard!)

As part of our new, quarterly Volunteer Recognition Program, we want to recognize and thank Lenard Runzer (far right in the photo) for all of his hard work. Anyone who has run across Lenard while volunteering with SCARS will not be surprised that he is the first one to be recognized. He was nominated by fellow volunteer, Christina: “I think everyone KNOWS how amazing he is.

I am a SCARS rescue mom of a pint sized staffy named MJ (who we adopted in July of 2020) and two cats named Evy and Killian (adopted from EHS a few years ago). I have a fiancé named Ben,  and we are getting married this October with however many guests we are legally allowed – ha-ha!

I recently started helping with our Facebook page(s) as well so you may have already spoken to me and didn’t even know it!!

I started volunteering for SCARS because I admire what they do and how they do it to help animals. Whether that’s going the extra step to educate communities or sending out warm shelters for the northern outdoor pets when the temperatures get below uncomfortable, even for them. It just warms my heart every time I see a huge animal intake…
