Meet our December Volunteer of the Month, Lindsay Drake! Interested in finding out more about volunteering, read for more about what our volunteers think about donating their time and hearts here at Salt Lake County Animal Services.
What brought you to SLCoAS?
In the last few years I've come to realize the amount of Rabbits needed for homes. I've always been passionate about bunnies, but when I read the statistics I just really wanted to help. SLC Animal Services is just an caring community, and provided the perfect place for me to come volunteer.
What is your favorite thing about volunteering?
Spending time with the Rabbits. All of them have such different and fun personalities. I love getting to know then and care for them.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Lot's of hiking, baking, reading and spending time with my family.
Tell us about your family and fur kiddos:
My husband and I have a bunny named Gandalf (Gandy for short), and we just loving spending time going on walks together and cuddling on the couch!
What advice do you have for new SLCoAS volunteers?
Don't be afraid to ask for help! There are so many great resources and everyone is so incredibly welcoming to helping. Also, never forget you are making a difference in these animals lives.
Do you have a favorite adoption story?
When we adopted our Rabbit, he was underweight, confined in a small space with other aggressive rabbits and was extremely timid. We weren't sure if he'd ever warm up to us. But now he's our best friend. He's so friendly, sassy and has soo much character! We are so glad we gave him a chance because once we provided a happy home he became the most happy bunny!
Tell us something unique about you:
I was adopted as well! One of the reasons I am such a massive advocate for animal adoptions stems from this. I was given a beautiful life with my adopted family, and our fur friends deserve the same as well!
Where is your favorite place to travel?
Paris! It's such a remarkably beautiful place and in the evenings it feel like there is magic in the air :)
