Unleashed – PAWsitive Stories from Salt Lake County Animal Services
Volunteer of the Month: Jacob Verde
Meet our December Volunteer of the Month, Jacob Verde, he began volunteering with Salt Lake County Animal Services in May of 2016. Jacob has a love for all animals but
saw that the cats really need and enjoy the interaction of our volunteers and
became one of our wonderful Cat Crusader volunteers.
Jacob comes into the shelter weekly
to spend quality time with the cats while they wait to find their forever
homes. Jacob helps clean up after them, play
with them, groom them and just sit with them and give them love and
Jacob is quickly learning a lot about
cat behavior and how they communicate with people when they are working with
them. Jacob volunteers with his mother, Kathy, who is also one of our wonderful Cat Crusaders.
Jacob shows a lot of dedication and
is always eager to learn and spend time volunteering. He is a wonderful example
of what volunteering is all about.

Thank You Jacob!!!! You are appreciated!!!

volunteered within the shelter with both the dogs and the cats, as well as
helped at events.

pet friendly housing who are struggling to find rentals who will allow their

twice a week and volunteers pick up an animal from the shelter and take it to a
local groomer offering their services for a bath and hair cut. This helps the
animal to not only feel better and get a much-needed bath but it boosts their
chance at adoption.
