Volunteer of the Month - April
You are here
Meet Jet, our April Volunteer of the Month!
Jet joined the HSU Volunteer team in May 2018, since then he has become a fixture on the Volunteer Behavior Team. In just under a year since he started Jet has donated over 300 hours to the animals here! He has spent time working with the dogs, target training our cats, working with our orange collar dogs, and helping to do playgroups with the Behavior Team. We really appreciate Jets willingness to continue to work to increase his knowledge about working with and training animals, his patience with shy animals, and how often he will stay late on a Saturday to make sure that every animal gets some time and attention.

I moved to SLC at the beginning of 2017, into a no-pets apartment. My apartment before that was also no-pets, but I was living closer to my parents and brothers, and (more importantly) their dogs.After about year I decided I wasn’t hanging out with dogs often enough and it occurred to me that the local Humane Society probably needed people to walk dogs and that it would be a great way to learn more about dogs and become a better dog-person.
