Charlie began volunteering with SLCO Animal Services in April of 2016. Long before Charlie started volunteering for Animal Services, he had adopted a very special dog with medical needs from the shelter. Charlie made sure he had a wonderful, full life.
Charlie jumped right into volunteering with the dogs and has become a very welcome addition to SLCO Animal Services volunteer program. Charlie comes in weekly to make sure the dogs are getting out of their kennels and going on nice, long walks.
Charlie has moved through the collar system here at county very quickly and this has given him the ability to work with more dogs in the facility.
Along with making sure that the dogs get out, Charlie also volunteers for the Utah Faces Groom transport. Taking dogs and cats to groomers who are offering their services weekly to help the animals have a nice “Spa Day” and increase their chance at adoption.
He is also often taking pictures and making videos to post on Face book to showcase an animal again increasing their chance at adoption.
But wait that is not all! In addition to all of the time Charlie spends making sure the dogs are getting socialization, sunshine, and a good groom, he wrote a well thought out proposal to improve our play yards. Staff and our volunteers will begin working on a feasibility plan to bring it to life.
Charlie is a wonderful example of what volunteering is all about and what a difference one person can truly make.
