Karen GoebelVolunteer Shines at Animal Care
and Adoption

Karen Goebel has been volunteering with Broward County Animal Care and Adoption for the past two and a half years and has become one of our most dedicated volunteers. She has easily distinguished herself with her responsibility, humility, and optimism. She started out as one of our foster parents who took home litters of orphan kittens and gradually ended up volunteering her time at our facility. She may be modest, but her talents are well known amongst all of our volunteers and staff. Newer volunteers often go to her for expertise about our shelter and she is always eager and happy to help. Karen is kind-hearted, high-spirited and an all-around pleasure person to work with. It’s often hard to find quality volunteers, but somehow we got lucky and we’re extremely happy to have her as a part of our team.
