Volunteering Since 2020
Betty Adamson started volunteering with Heritage Humane Society in 2020 and has quickly become a vital member of the team! She frequently comes into work with the kitties, helps the front desk staff with customer service, and is willing and able to jump in and assist with any task needed. The staff appreciates how Betty can have a meaningful conversation with practically anyone and her extensive background in animal welfare. A recent transplant, Betty wanted to introduce herself to the newsletter in her own words:
Hi Everyone, I am a transplant from Kansas City…yes, home of the Kansas City Chiefs! I am here to spend time with my son/wife and my 4 grandchildren. But KC will always be my home. Williamsburg is a comfortable city with nice weather and numerous trees.I am a retired Registered Nurse of 50 years, but my heart has always been with animals. I volunteered at KC Zoo, Operation Wildlife,and then decided to go back to school to obtain a RVT License. After retiring I traveled. I then started volunteering with Kansas City Pet Project, the third largest No Kill Shelter in nation. I was with them for 7 years, prior to moving. I worked with felines…transport,fostering moms and babies, bottle babies, growers and cat adoptions at Petco habitats. I knew I wanted to continue to volunteer at a shelter so contacted Heritage Humane. Thanks to Kim and Stefanie for accepting my calls and everyone has been very helpful at the shelter.I want to continue and foster, as well as complete the Fear Free Training Course and learn more about socializing feral cats.
