VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH

Help us celebrate our volunteer of the month TYSON MCNALLY 💙✨
Tyson may have not been a volunteer of NRN for very long, but he has sure made a difference! ‘I’ve always been a dog guy but usually to busy to go beyond my own and friends dogs. I was off work for a few months due to a shoulder injury so I decided to sign up with northern reach after I saw a post on Facebook asking for help!’. Tyson’s first foster experience he heard about an urgent need for a foster home for SEVEN puppies. It was then he had a first hands on experience with worms, lice and (of course)many many poops! With the help of so many volunteers involved with Northern Reach, Tyson was able to have a very positive first experience and helped save 7 furry lives. ‘My dog Neska, my rescue from my time working in Neskantaga 8 years ago, helped a lot with herding the 7 pups around the yard’. After the pups left Thunder Bay, Tyson then took it ‘easy’ by fostering a single pup named Cricket who had arrived into care showing signs of ‘rickets’. A couple weeks after Cricket left to Southern Ontario, Tyson decided Cricket was meant to be! He then did his first official NRN transport and brought 11 pups and 11 cats along for the ride to bring Cricket back home as a ‘foster fail’. 💙
A couple sentiments from some of Tyson’s peers who nominated him!
🐾Tyson is extremely efficient at getting things done, whenever he’s able to help he’s there.
🐾He has such enthusiasm
🐾He fosters when he can. Tyson has even driven a transport to Southern Ontario.
🐾He may be ‘new’ to Northern Reach but has been a fantastic addition, he really brightens everyone’s spirits
Thank you, Tyson, for your dedication and making a difference in the lives of these precious animals! 💙🐾
