Have you thought about volunteering at an animal shelter? A great number of animals require love and care, and most importantly, a forever home! Volunteers are essential to shelters, many of which are overpopulated and lacking enough funds.
You will find below a selection of photos captured by animal shelter workers, allowing you to appreciate just how lovely it is to be accompanied by fluff-balls while on the job. After viewing these, you’ll certainly be motivated to go and lend a hand. Don’t be misled however, as pleasing as hanging out with animals may be, you would be expected to perform all sorts of duties. From admin and fundraising to cleaning poop from the kennels, there is a lot more to it than just cuddling kittens and puppies!
