Make no bones about it — Idaho Power Energy Advisor Michelle Glaze is a bona fide animal lover. During National Volunteer Week, April 18-24, Idaho Power is highlighting the efforts of employees like Glaze who enjoy giving back to the community.
By day, Glaze works one-on-one with customers to help them save energy and money. By night (and on weekends), she comes to the rescue of Canyon and Ada county animals in need.
Glaze is a lifelong animal advocate, and her willingness to help knows no bounds. She has safely trapped lost pets, scanned for identifying microchips, driven animals to the veterinarian, provided temporary food and shelter and helped to raise money for pets in need.
Glaze is not affiliated with a specific rescue organization but works independently and gets many of her leads from driving through neighborhoods, word-of-mouth or by monitoring lost-pet pages on the internet through sites like Facebook and Nextdoor. After doing this work for nearly 30 years, she has become the person people call when they need pet help.
