Citizen of the Week

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

Karen Welch is this week’s Citizen of the Week. Welch was nominated by

Nan Johnson, who said the dogs and cats of Good Shepherd Humane Society

are grateful to Welch for all she’s done over the years. Welch has volunteered

days each week at the thrift stores and at special events, planted and tended

lovely garden beds at both the shelter and the Eureka thrift store, researched

hundreds of possible grant opportunities and written countless proposals to

obtain food, beds, equipment and medicines for the shelter dogs and cats.

“She is truly tireless in her devotion,” Johnson said.
