Volunteer of the Month, Debbie Wohner

Meet Debbie Wohner! Debbie is a Legal Assistant at a local law firm here in Louisville. As a volunteer, Debbie works at our signature events, Waggin’ Trail, Tuxes & Tails and Picture Your Pets with Santa. In addition, she manages several Belly Bank locations.

Each year for Waggin’ Trail, Debbie recruits her friend to volunteer alongside her at our registration booth. She is part of a team who handles 1,000+ participants through a speedy check-in process. Debbie also participates in Tuxes and Tails and assists with Picture Your Pets with Santa. She recalls that one year at Picture Your Pets, she convinced a friend to volunteer as Santa. “I think she had a good time, but has since stuck to registration.”

Debbie is also part of our Belly Bank volunteer team. Each month, she collects money from donation banks placed at local businesses and delivers the funds to our East Campus. This is such a big help to our team, and the banks bring in funds for our shelter pets!

Debbie urges others to join in, saying, “Just jump in! There are so many opportunities to help shelter animals while they wait for their forever homes.”

When not volunteering at KHS, Debbie loves to watch her friend’s dogs since her own pup, Daisy, passed in December 2018. She also volunteers for another local organization in town. She will often spend time with friends and family, travel, and take advantage of the warm weather to get outside and enjoy a nice day.

Debbie is pictured with Hera, a one-year old Boxer mix available for adoption at our East Campus.

Thank you to Raising Cane’s for their sponsorship of the volunteer program!
