Ros Chapman is helping bring new life to abandoned dogs. She is a volunteer at the Sequoia Humane Society. Retired from retail, she is helping hard-to-place pets, especially those with a troubled past. She volunteers by spending time with dogs, especially those which tend to be skittish near strangers. Ros said she became a volunteer after losing two cats to old age. Now she has found that her time at the Sequoia Humane Society is helping her to recover from that loss.
