Why I Volunteer: Corey Wise

Corey Wise,
Volunteer Puppy Raiser & DBL Young Professional Board Member

  1. Volunteering allows me to connect to my community and make it a better place.
  2. Volunteering is a two-way street: It can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help.
  3. Dedicating my time as a volunteer allows me to make new friends, expand my network, and boost my social skills.
  4. Ultimately, connecting with the unique personalities of the DBL dogs, as well as the pure joy I receive in seeing other people interact with these dogs, provides me with an unparalleled sense of fulfillment and a deep sense of purpose and meaning in knowing I’m making a real difference.
