Unleashed – PAWsitive Stories from Salt Lake County Animal Services
Volunteer of the Month: Laurie Schnossnagle
Laurie Schnossnagle KPA CTP, CBCC-KA, CPDT-KA, TAGteacher Level 1 has been a
volunteer with Salt Lake County Animal Services since January 2016.
Laurie’s partnership has been the leading force in our Building Better Behaviors Program, and she provides several free dog behavior workshops for us every month. She has logged 45 hours in workshop hours alone!
Laurie continues to give our adopters, fosters, volunteers, and members of the public the skills and knowledge to be able to communicate better with their dogs!
Her passion for dogs is apparent whenever you talk with her, and her knowledge about them (and their humans!) is indispensible. She has been an absolute joy to have as volunteer and always has a smile on her face. Her enthusiasm for our furry family members is refreshing!
Laurie has two Beagle mixes (Elphie and Dolly), a Shih-Tzu (Rafael), and an Aussie (Blitz) at home. All of them are rescue pups! She competes in various doggy sports with all of them and three of them are her working therapy dog partners (with the youngest in-training!)
Thank you Laurie for all that you do.
You are a lovely example of what the spirit of volunteering means!

Volunteer of the Month: Kathy Verde
began volunteering with Salt Lake County Animal Services in May of 2016. She
and her son, Jacob, decided that they would come in together and volunteer
their time to the cats. You will see Kathy and Jacob in weekly come rain or
time to give individualized attention to each of our cats. Whether she is
cleaning their cages, brushing them, giving them treats or just making sure
they are being petted and given the love and socialization that they are
seeking while waiting for their forever home. Kathy has dedicated herself to
being a part of helping them while they are here.
happy to help potential adopters with any questions they may have while she is
in the colony rooms working with the cats. She has attended our appreciation
parties and events; bringing some of her other family members to show them what
volunteering at SLCO Animal Services is all about.
She has no
problem jumping in to help in any area that is needed and is a wonderful
example of what volunteering is all about.
From all of us here at SLCO Animal Services:
Thank you Kathy!!!
