Sam Torres
St. Clair County Animal Control

This month NACA is proud to feature member Sam Torres! Sam started volunteering at St. Clair County Animal Control when she first moved to Michigan. She immediately fell in love with the animals, though she is a dog person she loves all animals! As soon as a position opened for hire, she knew this was the right job for her and applied right away. Sam says “I get so much satisfaction when the animals find homes! I now help to network the animals for my facility and volunteer my photography skills at other facilities to help get animals adopted faster.” Last January, Sam successfully received her ACO certification, although I am still working as an animal care tech, she has amazing plans for the future of her career and animal welfare!

Sam noted “being a NACA member means having access to training and opportunities to help better myself in this field. I love learning more and bettering myself.” 

Thank you, Sam, for your hard work, dedication, and compassion for the animals and everyone around you! You are a superstar, and we are proud to honor you as the April 2022 NACA Humane Highlight!
