To all our wonderful volunteers,
Every day I am inspired by your dedication, commitment, care and love for the animals that you work with at Animal Care of Davis County. Your passion and focus for each of our animals can be seen in their behavior, wellness and their playfulness while in our care. Our high adoption rates are greatly in part to your commitment and dedication to the homeless pets of Davis County and words cannot express our appreciation!
To our Animal Care Volunteers, thank you for taking such good care of our animals. We so appreciate our volunteers who go above and beyond to make sure our animals are in a safe, clean and welcoming environment. Your focus on their health and happiness comes through everyday as we see our animals enjoying their temporary homes. Our cats curled up in personalized condos, our dogs enjoying that extra toy chosen specifically for them or the bunny interacting with the enrichment you provided.
To our Dog Walking Volunteers, thank you for the time, dedication and care you give to the dogs at our facility. We can see just how much of an impact you have on each of them when you go to their kennel doors, leash in hand, ready to take them on a fun walk outside. Seeing the impact that you have just sitting in the hallway outside a shy dog’s kennel and watching that dog grow ever more confident is such a great experience.
A special thank you to our Cat and Small Animal Volunteers for taking the time to learn what each cat is working on and being there with them as they work their own journey on the way to adoption. It is such an important role. We may see you sitting outside a condo of a nervous cat, you may not see them as they are still hiding, but just being there, talking with them can make such an enormous difference. Thank you for being there with them!
To our Foster Volunteers, thank you for helping the pets in our care find the perfect fur-ever home. Your attention to the needs, personality and care of each of your foster pets is admirable as it helps our animals find the perfect family match. Thank you for going above and beyond, always ready to help and always focused on giving each of our animals’ extra attention. The animals in Davis County are so lucky to have you there helping them find their homes!
To our Community and Events Volunteers, thank you for always being open to helping at our many events, and callouts. Our events would not be able to run as smoothly as they do without your help and dedication. Whether it is behind the scenes planning and prepping to being front in center answering questions and providing support. We see you and we appreciate everything that you do!
To our Marketing and Photography Volunteers thank you for lending your creative spirit to our organization! From helping with social media, taking beautiful photos of our animals, or designing programs and marketing materials for us, we are so thankful that you have offered to lend your time and talents. You answer our call outs for help and are always keen to jump in - we are so thankful!
To all volunteers on behalf of all of our staff at Animal Care, we are forever grateful for the work that each of you do. We are one team, one family, focused on providing the best care for the animals in our communities! Our Shelter could not do what we do without each and every one of you and I thank you for choosing to be part of our family. We are so lucky to work with each of you.
