I volunteer at the Tri-County Humane Society, a shelter for dogs, cats, bunnies, etc. When volunteering there I walk the wonderful dogs and help people find their forever friends. People from the community come in and socialize with the animals to get to know them in order to find out whether or not they are a good fit for each other. Being able to help those in the community find a companion is amazing especially because the animals may not have come into the shelter from the best home. Volunteering at the Humane Society is a great way for me to meet new people in the community that care about the animals and it is a great escape from all of life’s distractions.
I have learned that companionship is a very important quality in life. I am so enlightened by the attitude that surrounds the shelter. I am learning more about customer service and looking more closely at the roles of both the human and the animal in a relationship. In addition, I have been able to practice my social skills in a real-life setting with respectable people. It’s an amazing experience helping the community through laughter and friendship.
