In Loving Memory of Corey Gradin

Cuddle therapist, kennel cleaner, escaped dog rescuer, Corey Gradin embraced all of her volunteer roles at APS with intense love and fierceness of purpose. She loved nothing better than hanging out with the dogs and cats that needed extra love and attention. Longtime volunteers knew they’d find Corey in the back of the kennel hugging a dog who was having a tough time with the shelter environment.
In her legacy, her family and friends are paying tribute to her with the establishment of Corey’s Cuddle Corner.
