The Humane Society of Sarasota County's volunteers generously give their time and talents, which enables HSSC to continue to save lives and expand our services for our community. With so many resources required to provide care for our animals, it would be impossible to fulfill our mission as the area’s premier no-kill shelter without our volunteers.
Many children will experience the joy of learning more about animals during our Fur Fun Summer Camps. We are so fortunate to have some absolutely amazing teen volunteers helping to facilitate the fun and learning. Raina and Jordyn Meyers, a dynamic sister duo, are graduates of the HSSC Teen Club. They are graciously sharing their energy and skills to assist Ginny Armington in making the week-long camps meaningful and memorable.
Raina and Jordyn certainly trump most of us when it comes to interesting pets. They have turtles, hamsters, cats, chameleons, guinea pigs, and mice—all under the kind and watchful eye of their senior pit/boxer mix.
Raina will be a senior at Riverview High School in the fall and envisions her future to include a business degree from FSU, followed by a self-directed international career helping to educate the underprivileged. Her younger sister Jordyn attends Polytechnic High School with a focus on engineering and has plenty of time still to develop her post-secondary plans.
These native Sarasota sisters are an absolute delight, and HSSC is grateful for their contribution to the cause of educating young people on the handling and care of animals.
