Volunteer Spotlight: Barbara Klink, Veterinary Team Liaison and Intake Team Volunteer
Discovering Goldens that are in need of rescuing and preparing them for their potential new adopters takes a village of talented people every step of the way. One of those important steps is to become the connection between the adopters and any possible veterinary help the Golden may need in order to become healthy and happy in their new home.
One of those amazing people is Barbara Klink, who has done this critical work since 2009 in Tucson and has helped hundreds of Goldens and their families come together with the best possible future in mind.
Recently, Barbara has worked diligently with one family, the O’Briens and their new Golden, Daniel as they experienced some health concerns soon after his arrival. The O’Briens contacted RAG to tell us that Barbara has been extremely responsive, calling them promptly, regularly, and organized Daniel’s care with knowledge and understanding. “Barbara has demonstrated great humanity and kept us informed all along the way. We would be lost without her support.”
Barbara is called “The Energizer Bunny” and believes in going the extra mile in getting these wonderful dogs along the road to their great new lives. She won’t overlook a thing and isn’t hesitant to act on behalf of the Golden and their adopters as long as needed.
We think Barbara exemplifies the mission of Rescue A Golden of Arizona and we thank her very much for her contributions over the years. The Goldens thank her too!
