Are you an animal lover?
Have you ever considered volunteering at an animal shelter?
Did you know it could be a project for the WHOLE family?
The boyz and I have been volunteering at our local Animal Control shelter since Christmas. No we have not been cleaning out pens, picking up poop or even have had the pleasure of feeding them but, we have been playing with them.
Did you know that a simple visit with these animals can help prepare them for when their new family comes to get them?
Yep that’s right you don’t even have to get them out of their pens, just a simple pet with your fingers through the fence does more than you can ever imagine. This is something I learned on our first visit to the Animal Control Shelter. With middle man being a little rowdy and baby boy being a little too young I knew we were limited on what we could do. Yet the officer explained the importance of the animals becoming familiar with human visitors other than the workers.
