APS-FH shares some kind words about their vol­un­teer of the month.

The Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Soci­ety is pleased to announce Ama­ra Johnsen as our vol­un­teer of the month for Sep­tem­ber. Ama­ra has been vol­un­teer­ing at the APS-FH Trea­sure Hounds store since March of this year. She works as a retail sales clerk for the store as well as being our res­i­dent jew­el­ry expert.

We were intro­duced to Ama­ra in 2021 when she adopt­ed Char­lie Girl from the shel­ter — a long-time lob­by cat with FIV — and gave her a won­der­ful, for­ev­er home.

For Trea­sure Hounds, Ama­ra brings her knowl­edge and under­stand­ing about jew­el­ry. She is a jew­el­ry mak­er who sells her beau­ti­ful items at the local mar­kets and fairs. Ama­ra can repair jew­el­ry and brings in her own tools and sup­plies to help renew items that have been donat­ed to Trea­sure Hounds so they can be sold to raise funds for APS-FH. Trea­sure Hounds sup­ports 25 per­cent of the organization’s operations.

Ama­ra is able to rec­og­nize spe­cial prop­er­ties in the donat­ed jew­el­ry pieces so they can be priced accord­ing­ly. She cre­ates beau­ti­ful dis­plays that show off the store’s jew­el­ry. Cus­tomers delight in the mer­chan­dise and the way it is dis­played. All of these skills have helped mas­sive­ly increase jew­el­ry sales at Trea­sure Hounds.

Ama­ra is always there for any­one that needs her — she is a kind soul and a delight to be around. Although Ama­ra is very busy with her jew­el­ry mak­ing and run­ning her busi­ness, she still makes time to vol­un­teer at Trea­sure Hounds, because she cares about shel­ter ani­mals. Just ask her cat Char­lie Girl!

APS-FH has numer­ous vol­un­teer­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties. If you are inter­est­ed in help­ing, vis­it our web­site to learn more about our vol­un­teer pro­gram.
