Well can you hear the doggie barking in the background? We're at Animal Care in Greenville, finding homes for pussycats and doggies. Madison Crymes is with us, Madison, how are you?

Madison Crymes, Award Recipient

I'm good, how are you?

Jack

Oh, word's out on you, kiddo. We know what you do. You're a volunteer here, aren't you?

Madison Crymes, Award Recipient

Yes sir.

Jack

Susan, is she doing a good job?

Susan Bufano, Animal Care Greenville

She's doing a great job. We're so thrilled to have her.

We're so appreciative of all of our volunteers that come, and Madison just has a great spirit and a great personality, and a great love for the animals. To some people it may not sound like much, but when she comes out and she just holds a puppy, it just makes that puppy feel better, or that dog feel better, and it may mean the difference between that dog being adopted that day, because maybe it feels a little better. So volunteers make a tremendous difference for us here.

Madison Crymes, Award Recipient

I love to help my community and I also love to do pageants, and I love when we can do it at the same time. Sometimes we help raise money for the Salvation Army, or the Children's Miracle Network, or the Palmetto Hospital.

In fact, Madison won the President's Community Service Award last year for everything she does, including regular visits to Oakmont Senior Care Center.

I bring a couple of books and I read to the paients, and sometimes I sing for them I know that they don't have a lot of people come to them and visit them, so i just want to come there and read to them, it makes me feel so happy and I know they're happy too.

Jack

We think you should be our February Caring for the Carolinas Award winner for all the great volunteer work that you do. I hear thunderous applause, do you hear it?
