Volunteer Spotlight: Sharon Spears

We love our volunteers! Without them, Dogs on Deployment wouldn’t function, and we wouldn’t have so many wonderful success stories to share.

Sharon Spears has worked with DoD since May 2013. She’s our National Director of Customer Service. She’s the friendly voice you exchange emails with when you register your pets, or sign up to be a foster for servicemen and women.

She loves her job with DoD. “The best thing I love about my position is assisting pet owners in getting registered” she says, adding “especially when they need immediate help, or have run out of other options, and they realize that we can help them and their beloved pet.”

Sharon says that she got involved with DoD because of her “love for animals,” and because she’s a proud Army spouse and is happy to assist other military members and their families. Since starting with DoD, she says that she’s had too many positive experiences to count, and each one of them has been important to her.

When she’s not working as an RN, or volunteering with DoD, she’s also a volunteer with the Army Company-based FRG. She says she also loves spending as much time with her husband and pets as she can. Like most of our volunteers, she’s an animal lover with pets of her own; she has two dogs, Moody and Radar, both rescues.
