Meet Salt Lake County Animal Services' November Volunteer of the Month: Nymaya Osman! Interested in volunteering find out more.
What brought you to SLCoAS?
I had been volunteering with animals for about 3 years already, before I joined SLCoAS. I was very interested in how our shelter served the county with respect to animal care and control. I was pleased to find that besides animal control, the shelter also does adoptions.
What is your favorite thing about volunteering?
The animals of course! I especially like seeing the joy on the dog’s faces when we take them out of their kennels so that they can roam free for a while.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I’m a total football junkie and love that it’s currently the NFL regular season. I’m from California so Go Niners and Raiders!
Tell us about your family and fur kiddos:
My closest family is still in California, and I visit them way too often. Unfortunately I have no fur kiddos yet but I continue to try to persuade my mom to get one.
What advice do you have for new SLCoAS volunteers?
The staff at the shelter are so nice. I would encourage anyone to ask for help if needed. Even with almost 5 years of volunteering, I still ask for help when needed.
Do you have a favorite adoption story?
Unfortunately, I don’t know any particular adoption stories. I think that’s credit to SLCoAS for helping these animals find their forever homes so quickly.
Tell us something unique about you:
I will be an international student in Toronto (Canada) really soon. As excited as I am about this, I will be so sad to be leaving SLCoAS. Thank you guys so much for having me.
Where is your favorite place to travel?
California. My home and happy place.
