RIVERSIDE – Volunteers from various county agencies received recognition Wednesday, April 24, by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors.

Four volunteers with Riverside County Animal Services were among the honorees. Each honoree had been recognized as the volunteer of the year at their respective home-base shelter.

Donna and Kristina Chavez, a mother-daughter duo from Menifee, were both honored as volunteers of the year at the San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus in San Jacinto.

Donna Chavez is an equine enthusiast who also enjoys photography and art. She supervises the photography team of volunteers at the San Jacinto facility and teaches others how to bring out the best in animals during their photo shoots.

Kristina Chavez, a 2017 graduate of California Baptist University, is equally passionate about animals.

She has earned degrees in biology and pre-medicine, and her volunteerism with Riverside County is providing animal-handling experience as she works toward becoming a veterinarian.

Mary Anderson was named volunteer of the year at the Western Riverside County/City Animal Shelter in Jurupa Valley, and Delores Anderson of Palm Desert, no relation to Mary Anderson, received recognition as the volunteer of the year at the Coachella Valley Animal Campus in Thousand Palms.
