Kind. Generous. Passionate. Three words that describes Brittany Baker beautifully. Brittany has been volunteering with the Michigan Humane Society for nearly a year and has been a rock star!

She has volunteered in many capacities. She walks dogs every Monday at the Rochester Hills shelter and has also volunteered with animal transport, the Pet Pantry and special events. Whenever a new volunteer opportunity apprises, Brittany is always eager and ready to help. She even got her corporate team involved when the Pet Pantry had a volunteer cancellation.

Brittany is an animal lover, which is how she started volunteering with MHS. She has grown up with cats and currently has one cat, Shadow. When asked what her favorite volunteer experience has been she answered, “I love the Bissell Empty the Shelters and Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo events because there is nothing better than seeing animals get adopted and go home with their forever families.”

Brittany is looking forward to volunteering at more special events and even medicine administration.

“I support MHS because I believe in the mission of the organization and want to make a positive impact in the lives of shelter animals in any way possible,” said Brittany.

Thank you, Brittany, for being an awesome volunteer and special thanks to all the volunteers who support MHS. Our work would be impossible without your daily help.
