Regina and her husband have lived in Greencastle for 32 years. She has held various positions in Human Resources when she worked. Regina graduated from college with a degree in Math and English. Both Regina and her husband are retired and enjoying spending time with their grandchildren.
Her experience with the Humane Society of Putnam County has been at Rescued Treasures as a volunteer. Last year, Regina fostered a dog from the shelter that had a pretty sad story. The foster dog had been picked up as a stray and been placed with 2 different families that had returned her to the shelter. When we met her she was recovering from complications after surgery to repair a hernia. She was also being treated for heart worm. We fostered her through the heart worm treatment and of course adopted her as soon as she had a clean bill of health. She is a great pet thanks in part to the excellent treatment she received at the shelter.
