GTHS Superstars: Chris Y.

National Volunteer Week is our FAVOURITE time of year at the GTHS Animal Shelter as it allows us to celebrate our phenomenal Volunteer Team. To this end, for each day of National Volunteer Week we are featuring a GTHS Volunteer that has gone above and beyond for the animals in our programs. They are our SUPERSTARS!


POSITION AT THE GTHS: Treasure Tails, Food Fairy, Cat Care

Chris volunteers every Sunday at Treasure Tails in downtown Collingwood. She is a long-term, reliable volunteer that always goes the extra mile for the GTHS and her co-workers. Recently, Chris added to her volunteer profile by joining the GTHS Animal Shelter on Wednesday mornings. She is the early morning food fairy and then she helps out in the Main Cat Room with the Wednesday team!

“She is an amazing volunteer, she never stops, she is like the energizer bunny always working to clean, organize and assist with everything related to the store.  She is amazing with all our clients, treats them with respect and assists them when needed.  I love working with her on Sundays, she makes my day sunny!  She is joy to work with.”  – fellow GTHS volunteer

Thank you Chris for being a GTHS Superstar!
