"It is time for outdoor pup playtime at Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation. Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation is a pet refuge in Falls Church, Virginia. It is a team effort to care for all the animals there.
"Don't forget to bend your knees!" said Suzanne Petroni. Petroni is a volunteer at Lost Dog. She was warning her group of helpers to relax their legs in the play yard while the dogs gallop past, in case they get bowled over.
Petroni interprets canine social behavior for some of the volunteers. She alerts them to brewing playground brawls while dismissing other snarls and bared teeth as signs of dogs being dogs.
Petroni is 50 years old. She works as an adviser on international women's rights. When she is not at her job, she spends about 20 hours a week leading playgroups at Lost Dog.
"It has been an amazing and life-changing experience for me," she said. She cannot imagine her life without volunteering there."
