Candice Mason began volunteering with Salt Lake County Animal Services in July of 2011!
From the very beginning Candice has been full of heart and we knew she would be a wonderful example of what volunteering is all about.
Candice has a true love for animals and you can see it when you see her work with them. She is truly compassionate not only to the animals but to those who also work with them whether it is staff or other volunteers.
Candice spends many Saturdays coming into the shelter getting the dogs out of their kennels to make sure that they are getting sunshine and socialization.
If you don’t find Candice at the shelter helping you are sure to see her at an event helping out in any way she is needed. She helps staff by: working with the dogs, the cats, helping with potential adopters or just making sure staff is taken care of by bringing them a plate of cookies.
Candice has also set up a job shadow for a girl that she knows to come into the shelter on her career day from school to learn all about what each of our jobs here at the shelter entail. This allowed this girl to know if this is a career path she would like to follow.
Candice is an inspiring example of what volunteering is all about.
