Volunteer focuses on saving dogs
BOCA RATON, Fla. -
This is one in a series of reports on individuals in the community singled out for their courage or heroism. They will be honored October 24 at an American Red Cross fundraiser.
If Sandra Greenblatt had it her way, she would adopt every dog at the Tri County Humane Society in Boca Raton.
"Of course I do but that is something you learn in the first few years, that you can't take every dog home," said Greenblatt.
Sandra has been volunteering at the shelter for the last 16 years. She cares for about 400 animals at any given time.
"They come from homes where they've been neglected or they've been abused, and they just need some TLC," said Greenblatt.
TLC that ultimately leads to adoption.
"Everyone deserves to have a wonderful home," said Greenblatt.
Sandra says refuses to give up until every animal at the shelter is adopted.
It's that commitment that keeps her going.
"I love them, and I want them to be in the best home they can be in," said Greenblatt.
