VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: MASON DANSIE
Mason began 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 kennels.
Mason has 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 adopted.
Mason has 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 on.
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!!!
