Volunteer Spotlight: Ashley Ake


Meet Ashley!

Volunteer & Foster

Current Pets:
Celina, FTTF foster – Celina is a champion snuggler and would love to hold down the couch with you! She is great with kids and cats but prefers to be the only princess in the house. She would do best in a home as the only dog or with a brother who is larger than her. No small dogs. This girl’s bright smile is sure to light up your world!!

*crate trained, house broken, leash trained, up to date on all preventative care!

How long have you been volunteering with FTTF?
Almost 3 months

Were you involved in animal rescue prior to volunteering with FTTF?

What made you decide to volunteer with FTTF?
After losing our furbaby in January, our hearts were broken and we were looking for a rescue dog to share our love with and heal the brokenness.

What are your primary FTTF volunteer roles? Do you have any favorite tasks?
Foster Mom. I also enjoy helping where it’s needed at events, etc.

What do you enjoy about volunteering with FTTF?
These pups and people are incredible. There’s nothing better than doing my part to save the life of a puppy that might otherwise not have the opportunity.

What would you tell someone looking for a place to volunteer who is considering FTTF?
Fostering is the most rewarding experience on the planet for both these dogs in need and their humans too!

Do you have any favorite volunteer stories or events you would like to share?
Bully Bingo is such a blast!! Spending time with friends and FTTF family all while raising money for these precious dogs…it doesn’t get much better than that. Oh, and did I mention drink specials?!

How has being an FTTF volunteer made an impact on your life?
Having Celina in our home has been the greatest blessing. She makes us laugh, keeps us on the move, and most importantly fills our home with joy!

Is there anything else you would like to say about your experience as a FTTF volunteer?
These dogs need every ounce of love, care, and financial support we can offer. I’m honored to be a part of this amazing organization!!
