This is the first in a series of profiles we will be doing to highlight the hard work of our PB SOC volunteers, who’ve been helping at the county shelter anywhere from a few months to–in Bridget’s case–7 years! We are so thankful for their hard work, and we can’t say enough about the talent and passion they bring to their volunteer jobs.

How long have you been volunteering with PB SOC?

Since it was created!

How did you get started?

I was a volunteer at the shelter who already focused solely on pit bulls. I started volunteering at the old shelter about 7 years ago.

What do you do for PB SOC?

I work with the confiscated puppies, who have been there since April 2013, and I help with doggy play groups.

What is one of your favorite things about working with the dogs?

I love getting to know the dogs, exercising and loving on them, and then trying to match each dog with an adopter.

What would you say to someone considering volunteering for us?

Just do it! You will get hooked!


Bridget can often be found working with the confiscated puppies (who are all grown up now!). She walks them, socializes them, and gives them lots of love. She also helps oversee doggy play groups, where the dogs get vital social interaction and exercise.


There’s always time to pause for a belly rub in the grass.
