Karina began volunteering with SLCOAS just a little over 4 years ago. She began as one of our Sunday volunteers and comes in to make sure that the dogs are getting out and getting exercise and social time during our closed hours.
Karina has a very kind heart and is always willing to help the dogs in any way she can. Karina has helped make and refurbish Kurunda beds for the dogs here at the shelter to ensure they all have a bed to sleep on while waiting for their forever homes.
She has made cookies for the dogs, brought in boxes of treats, provided Christmas stockings, Thanksgiving dinners and even provided a picnic with a dog whose health was declining.
Karina has brought out dogs to adoption events that otherwise would not have been able to go because of kennel stress. She walks them around and introduces them to others to be seen.
She has sponsored several shelter dogs helping them to get their assessments for K9 Lifelines “Pack to basics” class. This helped them gain the confidence needed to socialize well with other dogs and eventually led to their adoption.
Karina is a wonderful example of what volunteering is all about!
From all of us here at SLCOAS:
THANK YOU KARINA!!!!
YOU ARE APPRECIATED!!!
