Joey Doles Is Latest to Get Caught in the Act Award
Around the Shreveport Bossier Animal Rescue, Joey Doles is affectionately known as "The Cat Whisperer."
When you fully comprehend all that Joey does for the rescue, he might need to be called "Superman!"
It's Joey's selfless devotion to these animals and the rescue that have caught the attention and admiration of co-volunteer Anna Smith.
In her nomination letter about Joey, we see his compassion and kindness and fully appreciate the fact that he's driven by love and not by recognition.
However, we can't allow another day go by without shining the light on this amazing guy and recognizing him as this week's recipient of the Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award!
I volunteer at a local cat rescue called Shreveport Bossier Animal Rescue. One of our volunteers, Joey Doles, goes above and beyond all the time. He is our cat whisperer. He handles our most feral and fighting cats. He has a heartbreaking, demanding job that requires he be on call 24 hours 3-5 days a week, yet he stills runs 3 shifts a week, comes in whenever he’s ask or there’s extra work to be done. Because we’re a cat shelter we have a LOT of heavy, stinky trash that the garbage collectors either refuse to pick up or give us problems picking up. Joey will load up all this gross trash in his truck, wash out the trash cans, and haul it away. Any repairs needed - Joey does. He never complains, never fails to come through for us. He hates bothering anyone asking for help. He loves our cats. And he's a devoted son. I wish we could pay him for all he does, but no one gets paid. We’re strictly volunteers. He isn’t looking for recognition. He does all this because we need it done. He’s a hero to more lives that can be counted. Mostly cats, but also our adopters who wouldn’t have cats to love if not for all Joey’s hard work and dedication.
Joey Doles, because you've been 'Caught in the Act' the gang at Silver Star Smokehouse have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner!
Take a listen to the phone call we made to Joey to let him know that he was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
