“We provide medical care … we just want a temporary home so we can take the dog on the weekend and to show them and have their pictures online so these foster homes are really important but we don’t have enough so we can’t even take dogs in right now,” said Campbell.

Not content to retire quietly after her time with Buick, Campbell started volunteering at PAWS Animal Rescue. The 501(c) 3 nonprofit, which is a no-kill rescue organization, began in 1997, providing care for abused, neglected and abandoned animals.
