Fred McGuinn: SPCA
SPCA nominates Fred McGuinn, who has been a regular volunteer for the GPSPCA. His work has helped multiple adoptions and animals become successful. His humorous presence is always welcome for us here at the GPSPCA. Whenever he is around he always brightens a room of people! Fred is loved by the animals and by the staff here and we are extremely appretiative for the work he does with the dogs. Without him, we would not be able to have so many animals learn new positive habits or even find their home after all the tracking he's done. Thank you Fred for being an amazing person!
May Volunteer of the Month -- Bonnie Todd
Here's a look back at why this Rock Star Volunteer was nominated as the Tim Hortons Volunteer of the Week:
"St. John Ambulance would like to nominate Bonnie T for Volunteer of the Week. Bonnie came on with us in 2012 and has since provided us with amazing Volunteer contributions. She has given us 191 hours to date. On top of juggling a very busy career, she steps up when needed. Thank you so much for your valuable time you give to the community."
~ Jody Peakman, Community Service Coordinator
