Q&A with Sundyn:
What brought you to Salt Lake County Animal Services?
I have thought about volunteering at a shelter for years, but haven't had the time. Now I'm more available and happy to have the opportunity to help out.
What is your favorite thing about volunteering?
I love meeting all the different cat personalities. From sweet to salty, they all have something special.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoying snowboarding, reading, Bikram yoga and creating encaustic/found object art.
Tell us about your family and fur kiddos:
Right now I'm living with my sister and “Double Trouble”. “Double Trouble” are my two bunnies Jax and Harley. Jax is a Holland lop and Harley is a Holland lop/lion head mix. Jax is pretty laid back. Harley is the independent, sassy type.
What advice do you have for new SLCoAS volunteers?
Approach each animal with a blank slate. They are all different and I wouldn't assume one animal is like another. Let them lead the relationship.
Do you have a favorite adoption story?
I'm currently fostering Semi who is a cat with Cerabeller Hypoplasia. His adoption will be my favorite. He's such a special guy.
Tell us something unique about you:
I've been learning how to communicate with animals telepathically for about a year. I stumbled onto it and because of some very cool experiences I've had, I'm a believer.
Where is your favorite place to travel?
I went to France when I was 16. I would love to go back.
