 LeighAnn Briones 2  

LeighAnn Briones is the department's Volunteer Program Coordinator. She is new to the department but is not new to the world of animals. She comes to the City of Amarillo via the Humane Society of Deaf Smith County where she oversaw operations. LeighAnn will continue to work to build a healthy volunteer community that will help AAM&W advocate for animals both in the facility as well as in the community.
