    Autumn Atwill is a volunteer for our humane society in Mcgehee Arkansas. She spends tireless amounts of time and her own money saving countless amounts of dogs and cats and taking in stray puppies and getting the momma heartworm treatment so they can also have a chance at getting their loving home. Autumn works full time for Bayer Crop as well as spending her own money on them. She gets them spayed/ neutered vaccinated and any care they need so they can get good homes up north and not be put to sleep. She does everything she can to promote getting animals spayed or neutered to reduce the unwanted pet population. She is a pet hero in my book. She has also taken care of animals that were lifeless and gotten them vetted and found them good homes.
