Lavon Grahn is a 2016 Volunteer Recognition Award winner"Lavon fosters hospice cats during the last days of their lives. She loves them deeply and is always sad to say goodbye, but will immediately take home another hospice foster to care for the rest of its life. Lavon will also foster ferrets if needed. She fostered 7 animals in 2015. Lavon also volunteered at our Lombard Adoption Center when it was open. Thanks for opening your home & heart to these animals."
