Volunteering at PetCo South!
Guest Blogger: Kathy Poulton, Volunteer
I am a volunteer Adoption Counselor at Animal Friends’ offsite location at Petco South, and I love it!
I connect with like-minded people who want to make a difference in the world by actually doing something to make our world a better place. Taking action to help homeless cats find secure, permanent homes is quite rewarding and means a lot individually as well as to the group of volunteers.
Meeting all the new feline faces that come into our adoption room is quite exciting. I learn about their individual personalities and needs. We believe that each one has value and is worthy of our efforts to re-home them.
I have volunteered for a variety of causes in my lifetime but this experience gives me so much in return. There is such value in caring for our homeless pets and attempting to turn their lives around....with every adoption comes a feeling of "all's right with the world!"
I made a difference in their lives and enjoy knowledge that they are making a difference in their new human families’ lives. I highly recommend volunteering to see and feel what it is like to make a difference in this world. You can make new furry animal friends as well as human ones too!
Animal Friends has volunteer opportunities for a wide variety of interests! Learn more by visiting www.ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org/volunteer
