We are proud to share the following information on a handful of our volunteers who are willing to be posted on our website.
Deb & Levi:
Hi, I’m Levi! My mom has volunteered at Chimo since 2006, but I only started in 2012. Before me mom had Donovan, who was awesome! I’m also a Golden Retriever and I love going to my Saturday placements with kids. They love to play with me and crawl all over me – it feels like I’m in heaven with all the attention!
Kyla & Georgia:
Hi, I’m Georgia! I’m the sweetest, best looking dog you’ll ever meet. My mom works for Chimo and I come with her to work everyday. I was recently tested and passed to be a real Chimo dog! I’m so excited. Until I get a placement, I’ll keep the Chimo office staff company with my lovin’.
Ann & Simon:
Hi, I’m Simon. I’m a silver Lab, which means I’m very, very handsome! I’m also a fur-covered vacuum. If it’s on the ground, I’ll eat it. Actually, it doesn’t have to be on the ground, just somewhere I can get to. It drives my mom up the wall when I do this, but I seem to get more attention when I’m bad, so maybe I should continue?? My mom works for Chimo, so I come to the offices sometimes and play with my friends Macy and Georgia. As long as I get attention, I’ll go anywhere!
Cheryl & Macy:
Hi, I’m Macy, a purebred yellow Labrador. Therapy work is my ‘retirement project’, after four long years as a hard working breeder/momma of service dog puppies. I really love people, and I’m use to going to work with my human Mom, so this is my ideal ‘job’!
Alicia, Jasper & Pippin:
Hi, my name is Jasper! My sister Pippin and I are new volunteers for Chimo – and two of only a few cats. My mom works for Chimo, so up until now Pippin and I have mainly gone to the office to keep mom company. We’ve met a lot of dogs there, but tend to keep to ourselves. Some of those dogs (you know who you are Georgia) are too … energetic! I can’t wait until I get a placement where I can be cuddled endlessly!
Carol & Tawney:
Hi everyone, I’m Tawney and I’m a Bichon/Shih Tzu. I’ve been involved with pet therapy since I was only a 1 year old pup. I’m is very laid back and like lots and lots of pets, going for walks and playing catch.
Sharlene & Duke:
I’m Duke and I’m a Rottweiler/Husky cross. Everyone thinks I’m a gentle giant, but I think I’m just darn handsome! I love to go for walks and play with my toys. I’m very social and I love to visit people – especially those who like to cuddle and give me massages!
Karen & Murphy:
Hi everyone, I’m Murphy. I’m a very friendly, gentle and loving dog and I especially love children and seniors. My mom and I started volunteering in 2008 at the Glenrose. One of the ‘clients’ described me as a “sponge”, as I never tired of attention. And I’m very happy to return all the lovin’ I get!
Marie-Claire & Murphy:
Hi, I’m Murphy is an enthusiastic people-oriented dog, always looking for a good ear scratch and a knee on which to rest my head. I enjoy long walks and exciting games of hide and seek. I always remember my friends and grees them eagerly on return visits. I especially love walking in the river valley, chasing tennis balls, and cuddling with my favourite blankie.
Mark & Angie:
Hi I’m Angie and I’m an Australian Shepherd. I was adopted from the SPCA in 2005. I am very gentle but playful and I love everyone, young and old! I like to go for walks, swim, play games or just visit where I can be groomed and petted. I am a very social dog and once you’ve met me, you’ll never get enough of me!
Dave & Sam:
Hi, I’m Sam the Beagle. I love people and agility work! I’m also a world traveler: my dad and I are from Ireland, and I have my very own passport. Everyone who meets me loves me, and I love everyone else too…as long as they’re not a cat! Recently my little sister Sonic joined dad and I at Chimo. We’ll add her photo eventually – but she’s no where near as good looking as me!
