Sara Carroll

They say if you want a friend, get a dog. And when a dog needs a friend, Sara Carroll is always there.

Four or five days a week, you can find Sara at the Greenbrier Humane Society volunteering, just as she has for many years. She’s done it all–walking dogs, playing with cats, bringing treats, assisting the staff, and doing anything she can to help her “furry friends.”

Sara has done this for many years. When she was still working full-time, she would come walk dogs on her lunch break and on the weekends. Now that she’s retired, she comes most every day to shower the animals with love and affection.

For giving animals who are down on their luck a bundle of joy and providing them a second chance of finding a forever family, we are proud to name Sara Carroll as the certified Real West Virginian of the Week.
