Chloe Young - Volunteer Coordinator
Raised on a farm during her early years, Chloe developed a great love of the outdoors and had a strong involvement with animals since she was young. Through the years she has steadily intertwined the two passions while also pursuing volunteer work. Chloe enjoys taking her dog Lyle, an All Aboard rescue, on backpacking trips, hiking, and other adventures. When she’s not in the great outdoors or traveling, Chloe is learning the banjo and is a business student. Chloe became very involved with volunteer work once moving to Fort Collins in 2010, primarily focusing on community service projects. Her intense love of rescue dogs, having previously owned two herself, brought her to volunteer with All Aboard in 2016. She soon realized that working to get rescue animals adopted was a perfect way to combine her interests in helping dogs and in volunteer work. Being Volunteer Coordinator at All Aboard combines and allows Chloe to pursue her passions of helping dogs, volunteering, and working with people.
