What is the one thing every dog shelter (and animal shelter in general) needs?
There is always a shortage and a big need for volunteers. As a volunteer, you could be involved in various areas such as transporting dogs, taking care of them, taking them to the vet, organizing events, fundraising, marketing, help with web design and photography, and many, many others. No matter what skill set you have and where your interests lie, you can apply them as a volunteer in some way, shape or form, and end up helping the dogs find a new home. Not getting satisfaction from your job? Try volunteering! There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that your efforts helped connect a dog in need with a loving family.
