Vicki Shanks began volunteering for Salt Lake County Animal
Services in January of 2016. She has logged nearly 250 volunteer hours!
Vicki comes into the shelter every Tuesday and Thursday to hand
out and make new popsicles for all of the dogs. She makes sure every single dog
in the building gets individual attention and love at their kennel.
Not only does Vicki make enrichment's, she also participates in
our Click for Quiet program, which includes scent therapy and music or audio
books for the dogs. Vicki loves to get the dogs out for time out in the
sunshine after their pupsicles, and she is a cherished member of our volunteer
Vicki attends many of our Building Better Behaviors Workshops
and is always enthusiastic about learning new things and participating. She is
one our Volunteer Mentors for new volunteers as well.
Vicki also has a sweet senior Jack Russell Terrier at home.
Thank you Vicki for all that you do!
You are a shining example
of what volunteering is all about.
