August's Volunteer of the Month


Hui-Shan is behind many of the fun videos that have been posting recently. She's got the Ken Burns touch of authenticity, along with James Cameron's flair for special effects. She's also a regular dog walker as well. Thanks for all of your great work Hui-Shan!
What do you do when you're not at the shelter?

I am a nature lover; I love to go hiking! I also like traveling, swimming, reading and cooking.

Why did you initially decide to volunteer at BACS?

I grew up surrounded by dogs and have always loved dogs. My mom is also a dog-lover and she rescued many stray dogs, so I guess I inherited her love for dogs. I left my home country, Taiwan, for study eight years ago. Since I was busy and on the move all the time (8 cities, 4 countries), I couldn't afford to have a dog. I missed my life with dogs so badly. Finally I had time to contribute after finishing the bar exam. Therefore, while waiting for my bar exam result, I decided to volunteer at the shelter.

What are your favorite things about volunteering?

Seeing the big smile of dogs after walking them, seeing their running/dancing around in the play area.

Who are your favorite dogs, past and present?

Past: Bagel, Willie, Casper, Kauz, Brandy, Addie, Humphrey, Spud, Oreo, Lali
Present: Jeannie, Debbie, Nora, Elizabeth, Bernard, Eagle, Charlie and Moose!
