Scholarship Recipient Brooke Burdge Recognized as Featured Volunteer at Animal Haven in NYC
Casey Feldman Network site administrator, Brooke Burdge is the “Featured Volunteer” this month at Animal Haven in NYC. As many of you know, Casey and Brooke were friends and used to volunteer together at Animal Haven, taking the dogs out for much needed walks and giving love to all of the pets sheltered there, including the kitties. Despite
a hectic schedule between her studies, internship, working as a waitress and administering the Network site (CaseyFeldmanNetwork.org), Brooke has continued to make the time to volunteer with the animals. The photo of Brooke selected by the shelter for their feature of Brooke is one of Brooke holding the “Casey puppy”. Shortly after Casey’s death, a spirited black puppy arrived at the shelter and was named Casey, in Casey’s memory. Fortunately, this loving little pup was quickly adopted. Maybe our Casey helped orchestrate that adoption! When told that our Casey was probably smiling on this recent honor bestowed upon Brooke, as featured volunteer, Brooke responded, “She would get a kick out of this. I always wanted to be in that newsletter! Haha!”
Congratulations Brooke! Thanks you for your tieless efforts on behalf of all of the animals that you helped, including those at Animal Haven.
