February Volunteer of the Month: Liz Dranow
Liz Dranow began volunteering for SLCO
Animal Services in January of 2015 as a volunteer photographer. Liz has a
passion for photography and for animals and it shows in the pictures that she takes
of the animals here at the shelter waiting for adoption.
Liz is always willing to jump in and
be flexible about the photography session. Whether she is taking a picture of a
dog, cat, bunny, goat or even a pig, Liz is always more than willing to help.
Liz always has a smile on her face
and enthusiasm for the task at hand. Taking pictures of animals is not always
an easy task but it is always a fun experience.
Liz continues to bring great ideas
into the shelter to help improve our adoption and social media photos and even
recently helped us to set up a photo booth for our animals to take fun pictures
showing the animals personality.
A picture truly speaks a thousand
words and for shelter animals can make the difference of being overlooked or being
seen. Liz has a true knack for helping our animals be seen and her passion
shows through her work. Liz is a wonderful example of what volunteering is all
From all of us here at SLCOAS, Thank You Liz!!!!!
Unless someone like you cares a whole
awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
January Volunteer of the Month
VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: MASON DANSIE
volunteering with SLCO Animal Services 4 years ago.
Mason is one
of our Sunday volunteers and comes in to make sure that the dogs are getting
out and exercised during our closed hours.
A few years ago, Mason, along with other volunteers, made Kurunda beds for the dogs here at the shelter. This was such a wonderful gift for the dogs. It gives them a nice place to
rest and feel comforted while waiting for adoption. Through the years the beds
have needed repairs and Mason is always willing to grab a bed, take it home and
repair it. Thanks to his handiwork, the dogs still have beds in their
helped dogs that struggle at the shelter get to K9 Lifeline for
assessments and “Pack to Basics”. This not only helps dogs learn to
socialize better but results in their adoption because they are seen at K9 Lifeline and they develop the social skills necessary to be
provided needed treats to dogs with skin allergies, spent extra time and
attention with dogs that need more structure, provided valuable feedback,
made sure dogs with kennel stress get out to adoption
events , helped provide and distribute Thanksgiving Dinner……the list goes
Mason is a
true and wonderful example of what volunteering is all about!
From all of
us here at SLCOas :
THANK YOU MASON!!!!
YOU ARE APPRECIATED!!!
