ARC Volunteer Receives National Award

Montgomery County Animal Resource Center volunteer, Sarah Horsley of Butler Township, has been named the “Diane Lane Memorial Award” recipient by the National Animal Control Association.

Sarah has been a volunteer at the ARC since February, 2006. During that time, she has donated over 4,125 volunteer hours, distinguishing herself as one of our most dedicated contributors!  Sarah started as an ARC volunteer when she was 12.  She is now 17.

Sarah assists in the kennel as well as with offsite adoptions events. She is familiar with the ARC procedures and the staff has full confidence in her working with dogs & cats in our kennels.  Sarah is very faithful in coming to the shelter and often chooses to come at the end of the school day, staying until we close. Saturdays and all summer long, she can be found at the Animal Resource Center.  Sarah understands what it takes to volunteer in an animal shelter.

The “Diane Lane Memorial Award” is for outstanding volunteer service. According to NACA, the nominee selected to win this award must be someone who is not directly employed in the animal control field, but is a volunteer in animal welfare-related activities. He or she will have demonstrated exceptional dedication or performed outstanding work far beyond the requirements of the volunteer position.

“Sarah truly exemplifies the spirit for which this award was created,” said ARC Director Mark Kumpf.  “She continues to amaze us with her hard work and willingness to take on new challenges. In the process, she has helped thousands of animals at our shelter either find new homes or enjoy a greatly enhanced quality of life during their stay.”
