A freedom ride is a life changing event in the life of a rescue animal, and Amy Crawford is always there to greet the newest PawsCo member with love and the reassuring words: “You are free, nobody will ever hurt you again, and you are going to be loved the rest of your life.” During her time as a PawsCo volunteer Amy has been part of the Transport Team helping with everything from shelter pickups to vet appointments, “Amy is such an outstanding member of the Transport Team and always willing to help an animal in need,” said Katelyn Massey, transport director.
For Amy, rescuing animals is an opportunity to fall in love, “I can’t help but fall in love with every single dog I have spent time with, even if it’s just for a few short hours,” Amy said. When she’s not loving newly rescued pups, Amy is giving love to her children—canine and human alike—at home, “I’m so grateful for my two boys who have always had a deep compassion for animals,” Amy said. “I hope that my passion to help dogs is surpassed only by my ability to help shut down puppy mills, give as many dogs as possible their freedom rides, and to help out the amazing fosters that are the true heroes along with the rest of the PawsCo staff.”
PawsCo is proud to have such amazing volunteers like Amy who are dedicated to saving lives, “[Amy] often volunteers multiple times per month—at least once per week—which makes her a truly invaluable part of the team!” said Katelyn. “We are so lucky to have a volunteer like Amy.”
