Rod Payne


20140520 115442


Rod started volunteering with the Humane Society in June of 2013 and has volunteered 125 hours since! Rod is a dog’s best friend.  He began volunteering when he learned about the START program, where volunteers take dogs from the shelter to an hour of obedience training once a week.  Several times a week, without fail Rod is at the shelter working with his assigned dog, giving him much needed loving and teaching him some manners.  Additional, Rod helps at many community and adoption events, taking any opportunity he can to show off the skills of his training buddy.  The staff are very grateful for all of the time and attention Rod gives to the shelter dogs. 

Thank you Rod!
