Steven began volunteering with SLCoAS in July of 2015. He started as part of our Sunday Running group that meets every 2 weeks to run the shelter dogs.
He definitely found a passion in helping and decided that he wanted to learn more about being a shelter and event volunteer. Steven quickly took his orientation and signed up for his one-on-one training. He started coming in and spending a good portion of his day with the dogs, and the Special Programs Team here at the shelter, learning as much as he could. Due to Stevens knowledge of the dogs he was able to take over as a lead for the Running Group.
Steven has come out to our events and helped us from start to finish. He was an integral part of helping us set up, tear down and get pets adopted at our largest event this year Pet-A-Palooza!
When the running group needed new leashes, he took the lead and bought supplies for the group to make 15 leashes. Steven has since donated the items needed for us to make leashes and even came in and showed us how to make them. This will give us the ability to create projects for other volunteers and help those that may not be able to afford a leash for their dog.
Although Steven has only been volunteering with SLCoAS for a short amount of time he has made a huge impact and a wonderful impression on us all and truly projects what volunteering is all about.
From all of us here at SLCOAS:
THANK YOU STEVEN!
YOU ARE APPRECIATED!!!
Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the biography of souls.
