Volunteers of the Month
Tom and Kathy Stull
Kathy and Tom have been helping at Great Plains for almost a decade! They perform a myriad of tasks to help the shelter run such as maintenance and repairs, transporting pets to and from the shelter, and fostering the occasional dog. We know that we can count on Tom and Kathy if we are in need! Their support on so many levels has been invaluable at times.
Foster of the Month
Julie Adkins is a new foster to Great Plains SPCA but has made all the difference in the life of miss Callie the cat. Callie was transferred to Great Plains from an outdoor living situation where the guardian thought she was pregnant. It turned out that Callie was simply a bit plump but also, as Julie discovered, had an injury that caused her to limp. Thanks to Julie, Callie is now on some medication to help with the old injury and has been able to show her true personality in the foster home. In the shelter, Callie was extremely scared and stressed. Now, Callie's nickname is Cali-Roo because she pops up onto her back paws to lean into your pets even more.
