Dave and Nancy Harvey are the Animal Protection Society of Friday Harbor's Volunteer(s) of the Month.
Dave and Nancy moved to San Juan Island several months ago and have been loyal, active volunteers at the animal shelter ever since, starting on the day not too long ago when Dave brought his riding lawn mower to the shelter and mowed the entire dog yard while Nancy visited cats.
The couple visit the shelter frequently, often two or three times a week and spend time brushing, cuddling and playing with the many cats awaiting adoption. Dave and Nancy adopted a pair of bonded cats recently, even though Nancy is mildly allergic to cats.
Shelter Manager, Jan Murphy, says, “Volunteers who take the time to visit with our cats are such an important part of what we do here.
Dave and Nancy help the cats here become more adoptable by socializing them and helping them to feel more secure in the shelter environment. Their contribution to APS-FH is enormous and deeply appreciated.”
