“We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.” I. Kant
When Patricia Dean retired from her career at Tower Bank in Auburn, she wanted to do something to help her community and  that would fulfill her.  Patricia loves animals. She has been an avid Animal Planet watcher for years, and after seeing so many pets being abandoned, she wanted to try to make a difference in the lives of these helpless and often hopeless animals.  They can’t tell us their stories, they can’t defend themselves…so it’s up to us to reach out to them.  Patricia does just that as a volunteer with the Humane Society of Whitley County.   She spends countless hours bathing them, feeding them, showering them with love and attention.  She comforts them, plays with them, and enjoys showing them to potential new families.  She knows all their names and the special quirks of their personalities!  Without Patricia’s dedication, many of these loving animals would not be the healthy, happy pets they are today.  

The cat you see behind a fence represents the ongoing need that Patricia works so hard fulfill for the many animals that come through the shelter.
