Meet our August Volunteer of the Month, Danielle Wilkerson. Danielle has been a volunteer with the Kentucky Humane Society’s East Campus for five years. Each week, she dedicates her time and energy to the animals in the shelter.
As a volunteer for KHS, Danielle socializes dogs, takes them on walks outside for exercise and assists with cleaning kennels. Her favorite part of volunteering is giving the animals love and affection. Her favorite memory during her volunteer experience was holding four puppies in her lap while they were all taking a nap. She finds volunteering a wonderful opportunity to share her time and talents with animals that truly enjoy being loved.
Danielle is involved in a variety of activities around town. She participates with Special Olympics Kentucky by playing basketball for the Louisville Wizards. She also attends the Adult Development Academy at Down Syndrome of Louisville. However, her true passion in life has always been animals. Danielle is kept busy caring for her own beagle, Molly, for the past 16 years.
Outside of volunteering, Danielle enjoys family time with her parents, sister, Gabby, and brother, Greg. She enjoys going out to dinner with her grandparents. Danielle also has her own circle of friends who go bowling, swimming and watch movies together.
Danielle is pictured with Katie, a 2-month-old Hound mix currently available for adoption.
