Andrew Shawver lives in Fort Atkinson, IA and has worked at the HSNEI Love & Adoption Center for three years.
He was a volunteer at the Adoption Center before he joined the Center staff. His love for animals drew him to HSNEI.
Andrew enjoys working with both cats and dogs at the Center and loves seeing animals go to their forever homes. His most rewarding adoption was Rocky, a dog who came to the Center very scared of everyone. Andrew would eat lunch with Rocky in his kennel until Rocky grew to trust him. It was Andrew's dedication to and patience with Rocky that helped him find his forever home.
Andrew is also a chef and has started his own homemade ice cream business to support HSNEI's mission. Adopting a shelter pet is important to Andrew as he believes all animals need homes.
