While Linda Dorset may be reserved, she is a volunteer of the most valuable kind. She started helping out at Maui Humane Society more than ten years ago, where she washed dogs with her son, Jon. They came to help our Animal Care Attendants keep our shelter dogs clean and socialized. Jon eventually started working at MHS as an Animal Care Attendant, where is he still an awesome and valued employee today!
Linda decided to continue volunteering in a more specialized way – specifically, to start and film, Pet Files, a television show dedicated to our shelter animals. Pet Files is featured on the county channel, AKAKU, and airs every Thursday at 6:30pm on channel 52. The show features shelter pets available for adoption, and highlights other information on upcoming events, current promotions, and outreach efforts.
Linda has worked on filming, editing, and producing this show for more than six years now – always behind the scenes, and has worked with a few different volunteer partners. Currently, the host of the show is Christina Lundt, who comes to MHS with Linda every other week to film the new episodes. These women make a great team and have a way of working with both the dogs and cats; their love for animals shows through their patience, smiles, and dedication.
Linda also helps with special events, such as our biggest annual fundraiser - the Fur Ball, the recent Hyundai Tournament of Champions (where she helped get two of our happy hounds adopted!), and other mobile adoption events. Linda always proves a valuable asset no matter where she's helping!
Whether referring to her reliability and dedication, her animal handling skills, professionalism, or her endlessly positive attitude, all of us here at MHS are grateful to Linda in more ways then one. She is truly a pleasure to work with and has a warm and caring heart for all of the animals (and people!) she helps.
Mahalo nui loa Linda, for all your support throughout the years – you mean more to us than you'll ever know!
