Animal Friends' Volunteer Friends and Family Day

On Sun., Aug. 16 Animal Friends will welcome their volunteers to bring friends and family to the shelter for a special day highlighting the many achievements of Animal Friends volunteers.

Animal Friends became a certifying organization that was given the authority to recognize and present the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award. Animal Friends wanted to tremendously honor these lifetime achievers. By providing Presidential recognition to these 80 volunteers Animal Friends is hoping that their volunteers truly understand how much they mean to the organization.

From 2:30-3:30 p.m. 80 of Animal Friends volunteers will be awarded the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for volunteer service. This select group of volunteers will be recognized for giving more than 4,000 lifetime hours of service to Animal Friends.
In addition to the ceremony, visitors will be invited to participate in the behind-the-scenes tours on the hour from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Tour participants will learn firsthand about not only the shelter’s programs but also in the ways volunteers are a part of every corner of the organization.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to tour the Mobile Resource Center (MRC). This mobilized unit enables our Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Department to take its services on the road and into communities that need it most.

And from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Mission Mahi, Pgh Halal Food and the Pop Stop food trucks will be contributing to the celebrations of this special day!

So join us this Sunday and join the fun!
