Jillian began volunteering with Salt Lake County Animal Services in May 2016. Although Jillian is new to volunteering with the shelter, she dove in with incredible enthusiasm.
Jillian comes into the shelter several times a week to make sure that the dogs are getting out of their kennels for some sunshine and socialization. Jillian quickly became an Orange Collar volunteer which allows her to work with more dogs in the facility.
She helps out with the enrichments for the dogs, handing out pupcicles and making a batch for the next day, she made a video for a dog who had been here for awhile to help him get adopted, and even spends time volunteering while at home making new kennel cards for the dogs.
The kennel cards are eye catching and bullet point the specifics about each animal. This is very helpful for potential adopters to be able to see at a glance if the dog is the right fit for their home before asking to meet them.
Jillian also made a video and posted it to our Facebook page showing why she loves to volunteer. She wanted to encourage other people to volunteer and make a difference to the animals waiting to be adopted.
Jillian is a wonderful example of what volunteering is all about!
