VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: MASON DANSIE
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
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
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
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!!!
