Please join us in congratulating our June Volunteers of the Month! Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization and our shelter pets are lucky to have amazing people like them advocating on their behalf every single day!
Jamie and Amanda Johnson are a husband and wife duo, who both individually and together, contribute majorly to the operations of our Independence campus. The Johnson’s have served nearly 2,300 volunteer hours jointly, which is simply astounding. Jamie can typically be found interacting with the most in-need dogs, assisting staff with adoption-related tasks and transporting shelter pets. On the other hand, Amanda assists in our Intake Department, Veterinary Clinic and Reception. According to a member of our Adoptions Team, “Both [Amanda and Jamie] work very hard while here and all their help is truly appreciated and very meaningful.” On behalf of Great Plains SPCA, thank you for all you do, and congratulations on becoming our Volunteer of the Month!
If you have spent any time in the Cattery at Merriam’s Pet Adoption Center, you have more than likely encountered the amazing generous, helpful and dedicated Jeane. She has been a member of the Cat Hero Team since 2015 and has accumulated nearly 300 hours of cat care, laundry and staff support. For Jeane, volunteering began as something she did with her mother who had actively contributed in animal welfare causes since 1975 with the Kansas City Zoo. When she passed away in 2015, Jeane wanted to continue her mother’s legacy by volunteering her time and energy at Great Plains. On behalf of Great Plains SPCA, thank you for all that you do and congratulations on becoming our Volunteer of the Month!
