Donna and Lulu

Donna Horan has been a really “sweet” volunteer for Caring for Creatures since 2005.  She began making and selling baked goods soon thereafter, donating the proceeds to CFC.  Her baking has satisfied many a sweet tooth and bread lover!  When Donna isn’t baking, she is busy walking CFC dogs, washing them, helping with fund raisers, and transporting dogs to and from CFC’s very helpful Veterinarians.  Donna also sells dog bandanas, cat toys, and she has just added cat nip bags, all of which provide much needed revenue for the Sanctuary.

With all of her caring for Creatures activities, it’s hard to believe that Donna has time for anything else, but she loves cooking and baking, working around her great house, traveling and cruising, and having family and friends come to visit.

Donna and her late husband Bernie lived in Hicksville Long Island, New York before moving to Lake Monticello.  They built their house in 2003 and moved in in 2005.  Soon after, persuasive Sue Scott (see other Volunteer Spotlights) came knocking and asked Donna if she liked animals and would be interested in helping at an animal sanctuary walking dogs once a week.  Donna said yes and the rest is history.

When asked who her favorite dog is, Donna chose Lulu, a five year old black and tan beauty.  “She really is beautiful, she’s house trained and just a sweet girl who needs a loving family,” Donna said.

Donna’s husband died in 2012. She is sustained by the love of her friends at Lake Monticello, her family, and the unconditional love of her four legged friends at Caring for Creatures.  CFC is a peaceful spot to walk dogs, and the rural setting and the quiet helps to reduce stress.  In her words, “you get to escape for several hours from the craziness of the world.”  She especially appreciates the “thank you” and the “I am glad to see you” doggie kisses, and the barking and tail wagging when she arrives at the Sanctuary.  It makes her day!

Come find out for yourself why Caring for Creatures is such a special place.  You can meet Lulu and the other dogs and cats at CFC.  You might even see Donna walking or washing dogs.  You can also check out the dogs and cats at www.caringforcreatures.org.
