Banking Outside the Box - Sydney at PAWS

Banking Outside the Box - Sydney at PAWS

Introducing Sydney and Simba! Sydney Keifer joined our Video Banking team in early May to work the evening shifts. She was anxious to begin our Banking Outside the Box volunteer activities. She was by far most excited to get to spend her day with kittens! For November, First Security has decided to partner with PAWS Humane Society in Charles City to help spread awareness of animals available for adoption, all in efforts to find fur-ever homes before the holidays. 

“When we were going through the pictures to choose a favorite, I kept most of them for myself because I love them all so much,” Keifer laughed. “I was very excited to have the opportunity to partner with PAWS and help promote local animal adoption.”

Pictured with Keifer is Simba, a six-month-old, neutered male, long hair kitten. Simba was found on the street, unable to move due to a broken leg. The accident unfortunately led to the need for his front leg to be amputated. He is adjusting well after his recent surgery, but ideally Simba would love to find his forever home as soon as possible. A home would provide him with the space he needs to adjust to walking with three legs. Despite having only three legs, Simba is a high-spirited kitten who never stops purring and loves to snuggle!

Sydney is the second of six video bankers and Simba is the second of six PAWS animals to be featured for our November Banking Outside the Box initiative. For Sydney’s post, we are doing something a little different. To be entered into our drawing for a $50 donation to be made toward PAWS in your name, please comment with your favorite pet (or animal, if you don’t have a pet) story on this post on our Facebook page. We all would love to hear your stories! Remember, you can be entered up to 6 times (one for each Video Banker’s post). Be sure to share Simba’s photo—the more people to see his story, the better his chances are of finding a home.
