Salt Lake County Animal Services has many volunteer opportunities available. Meet our volunteer of the month, Lindsey Hadley, and find out more about what brought her to our shelter.
What brought you to SLCoAS?
I came through Salt Lake County PIT CREW.
What is your favorite thing about volunteering?
Knowing that my time gives happiness to animals while waiting for their forever home.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Movies, time with my family.
Tell us about your family and fur kiddos:
I've been married for 10 years with an almost 7 year old daughter and almost 4 year old son. I currently have a 10 year old blind/diabetic pitbull named Sammy and a aprox 15 year old cat, Jessie.
What advice do you have for new SLCoAS volunteers?
Even the tiniest amount of time spent volunteering, can make a life changing difference to an animal in need of a home.
Do you have a favorite adoption story?
My own dog, Sammy whom I adopted from Best Friends Animal Society when she was about 1. I was helping set up one of their super adoption events on Friday morning and I saw her in a kennel so vibrant and full of life. Happy. I knew she'd get adopted. When I returned Sunday evening to help tear down the event she was still there looking very defeated and sad. I took her home and she's been the four legged love of my life for over 9 years!
Tell us something unique about you:
I enjoy cosplaying at the fanX events each year. Harley Quinn is my favorite!
Where is your favorite place to travel?
I love camping or going anywhere with a beach and a drink in hand.
