Roxy Nygard is a 2016 Volunteer Recognition Award winner."Roxy is the Pitbull savior. She has fostered 13 pitties since March of 2013. She also found all of them homes. While fostering all of these dogs, she has 4 of her own. Roxy is so passionate about what she does, she has two separate living areas, so she can take hard to place dogs. In her spare time, she works full time, volunteers in the dog kennels and is a mentor for new volunteer training.  All we can say is “Roxy Rocks"!
