Greg Ollinger – Animal Adoption Foundation’s Volunteer of the Month

Animal Shelter VolunteerMeet Greg! Greg was nominated for Volunteer of the Month because of the many hats that he wears here at AAF.  Greg currently serves on the Board of Directors as our Treasurer.  As Treasurer, he has helped us to make vast improvements in streamlining our financial processes.  When he is not wearing his Accountant hat, he is strapping on his tool belt and addressing the various repair issues that crop up in the shelter.  We call him “MacGyver” because of his ability to fix anything and find solutions, with sometimes minimal resources.

Greg tells us: “I first started volunteering at AAF about four years ago.  My wife Sharon got me involved and I started out doing a few maintenance projects around the shelter.  Since I have an accounting background, the board approached me in 2014 about consulting with them to update and improve their accounting system.  I joined the board in 2015 and became treasurer of AAF later that year.  Today I divide my time at AAF between accounting and shelter maintenance.  This has been a great experience for me and I thoroughly enjoy the staff and volunteers.  I truly believe in the mission of the Animal Adoption Foundation and I am happy to further that effort in any way I can.”
