Shona Gagnon

For many years, Shona Gagnon has been an integral part of the PADS Okanagan community. Whether as a volunteer or a staff member, Shona continues to support the PADS Okanagan Puppy Raisers in many ways.  

After a brief absence in 2018, Shona returned to PADS Okanagan in 2019 and was a fixture at puppy classes and always stepped up to help raisers with specific training challenges. Shona is always ready to help when needed by providing class support and sharing her training knowledge. 

It is with sincere gratitude that we present Shona with the 2019 Volunteer of the Year award for PADS Okanagan! With all that she does, it was a natural fit for Shona to rejoin the PADS staff team in late 2020 as the Okanagan Trainer. Welcome back, Shona, and thank you for all that you do.
