Just For You!
Report Your Hours
We ran some numbers and learned that only 23% of our volunteers report their hours each month! Reporting your hours is extremely important for ITA for a number of reasons:
We have wonderful supporters: foundations, grants and individuals who enjoy hearing how their funds are furthering our mission, how many hours are given to our communities and how many lives have been impacted by our services. Without their support, our organization could not continue—it’s that simple.
It helps us know who is visiting where. When we get special requests for visits to a specific location we will know who to call.
It is a requirement that you agreed to when you signed your Volunteer Job Description. You sign this job description at orientation, and have a copy in your own manual (page 225 approximately).

ITA Crisis Response Team
Sign up to be a part of the team!
ITA is putting together a Crisis Response Team; a group of volunteers who are willing to participate in immediate crisis situations. If you would like to join, you will be a part of a group where ITA will be able to send out any requests we receive for those who are directly affected from a crisis or the first responders who were on site. This will be 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
This is an effort from ITA to be able to provide powerful relief and support for those who experienced shock, loss, and/or grief. You do not have to be available and ready for all crisis events to be a part of this group, but you do need to be willing to respond when you are able to!
Once a team is formed we will provide additional training in regards to working with individuals going through traumatic events. (There is no charge for the training.) We will also invite you to belong to an App that will better help us get the word out quickly when teams are needed.
Please email Karen@TherapyAnimals.org for questions or to become a part of the team! We are hoping for teams in every local chapter (Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Utah County)!
