Unleashed – PAWsitive Stories from Salt Lake County Animal Services
Volunteer of the Month: Hannah McNeely
Salt Lake County Animal Services December volunteer of the month is Hannah McNeely.
Hannah has been volunteering with Salt Lake County Animal
Services for one year now and has jumped right in with both feet. She has participated
in our University Dogs Program and really taken to training the dogs here at
the shelter. She moved up to an orange collar level this year and always gives
great feedback on the dogs that she works with.
We appreciate Hannah and her willingness to work with new
dogs for our training program. She is a great team player and works well with
other volunteers and staff members here at Salt Lake County Animal Services.
Your diligence, self-motivation as well as dedication have
been a source of inspiration for the rest of the us. Great volunteers
like you never want anything in return, but are always ready to do great things
out of turn. Thank you for volunteering.

Join Salt Lake County Animal Services at RoHa Brewing Project for this one day giving event. 4Truck food truck will be serving food for purchase. Animal Services will be accepting donations and giving away prizes.
Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2017, is a globally celebrated day of giving back and this year Salt Lake County Animal Services will be participating. Animal Services is raising money to continue specialized trainings for our shelter pets and owned pets. One of our life-saving goals is to reduce the number of returns in our more difficult dog population: dogs that may have behavior issues.
We do this by putting our more difficult dogs through specialized trainings with outside trainers. These trainings help give our dogs much needed life skills that will help make them more adoptable.

This event is for 21 and older. Please leave your pups at home!

Volunteer of the Month: Ari Abalos
Ari Abalos is our Volunteer of the Month this November at Salt Lake County Animal Services.
Ari is a very active participant in our volunteer program
and always goes above and beyond. Ari quickly moved from a green level
volunteer to an orange level volunteer when we had an extremely busy summer and
he noticed we needed to get our orange collar dogs outside more often. He has helped
at events and also brings his daughter in to read to our cats.
Ari has fostered two dogs for Salt Lake County Animal
Services, Major and Shenzi. He and his family adopted Major not long after
taking him home; they just couldn’t part with him!
Ari has a great attitude and is willing to jump in wherever
help is needed. His passion for animals is very apparent and he makes a
difference in the animals’ lives here at the shelter.
Thank you Ari for always coming with a smiling face and a
helping hand. We love having you as a part of our volunteer family AND our

Volunteer of the Month: Emily Strong
Emily Strong, CPBC, CPBT-KA has been volunteering with Salt Lake County Animal Services since 2016 but she has been working with animals since March 1990. In that time, she has trained many species, including (but probably not limited to): dogs, cats, parrots, a wide variety of other species of birds, rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, rats, mice, horses, miniature donkeys, pigs, goats, tortoises, leopard geckos, snakes, pygmy octopi, fish, and even praying mantis! How neat is that.
Emily teaches free workshops through our Building Better Behaviors Program and her expertise, passion for animals, and her wonderful speaking skills always draw a large crowd and her workshops are nearly always full! Emily believes that the knowledge of behavior science should be accessible to everyone, which is why she volunteers her time to help adopters, owners, volunteers, staff, and fosters here at Salt Lake County Animal Services, and we are so thankful for her.
Emily has two dogs at home, Brie and Copper, several rescued parrots, and one foster bunny.
Thank you Emily for all that you do for the animals AND their humans!
