Jessica Borda has enjoyed many an Austin sunrise and sunset amongst the ranks of Austin Pets Alive’s finest shelter residents. She empowers volunteers by the dozen to come in when there are gaps in scheduled staff as well as to improve the quality of life for the dogs whether APA! is staffed or not.
She has implemented programs that get volunteers moving, and that means the dogs get to stretch their legs and even play multiple times a day on top of their morning and evening walks.
Over the last year, Jess has rocked the role of Dog Walking Lead and is an instrumental member of the Dog Leadership Team at APA!. She works with a team of over 1300 volunteers, and also works with the APA! Behavior Team to teach basic obedience and behavior training to the dogs on campus that need it most.
Come get inspired to mobilize the masses toward one common goal- giving a better life to dogs while they await their forever homes.
