Guide Dogs for the Blind lost a wonderful employee, volunteer, and friend with the sudden passing of Lee Shenk on January 9, 2016. Lee worked with GDB as a puppy truck driver for many years and was responsible for delivering countless puppies to volunteer puppy raisers throughout the Western U.S.. He made every delivery special, providing raisers with clues about puppies’ names and sharing his smiles and kindness with all. He was also extremely compassionate with raisers, who were tearful as their puppies were recalled for training or joyful as retired guides or career-changed dogs returned to their care. Lee also volunteered in our San Rafael vet clinic where he contributed to the care of puppies and guides and won the hearts of colleagues and clients alike. He will be greatly missed, but never forgotten; please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
