Have you ever volunteered? What were your experiences like?
The reason I felt like posting this here today is because I know how much shelters need help. I volunteered at my local no-kill animal shelters all through middle school and high school. Both shelters I volunteered at relied heavily on donations and the dry food was an amalgamation of whatever was left at their door. Wet food was less common and normally only given to those who needed it. (Nursing mothers, babies, those in the ICU etc). Stacks and stacks of cages lined the walls and sometimes floors. When there were too many, some cats would have to double up or be placed in cat-carriers wherever there was space. The ICU and Quarantine rooms were just tool sheds out back. Though when I left for college, they were looking for funds to expand their shelter and maybe even have a room for cats to walk around in, I don't believe they've acquired it yet. I spent most my time cleaning out the cages, administering medicine, and socializing the cats. Whenever someone came looking for a cat to adopt, I tried to steer them towards the older ones who were well socialized but had been stuck in the shelter for months on end since kittens are what adopt out quickly. I wish I knew a shelter I could help out at around where I went to college....
Anyway... It sometimes makes me wonder how I can justify this expensive hobby when I know these animals are hurting...
