Four Benefits of Volunteering with an Animal Shelter
In his free time, William Timperley volunteers with an animal shelter in Massachusetts. While the work of volunteers benefits the animals within the shelter, volunteers themselves may find that they receive something in return. If you’re considering volunteering at an animal shelter like William Timperley, you may find that you get more out of the experience than expected.
1. You’ll meet like-minded people: Making lasting, organic friendships is not always easy for adults, but it becomes easier when you are surrounded by well-meaning people with whom you share common values.
2. You’ll stay active: Volunteering with animals gets you out of the house for a good cause. Whether you’re playing with the animals, washing them, feeding them, or walking them, you will be up and moving around.
3. You’ll learn something new: Whether you’re an experienced pet owner or just getting acquainted with animals, working at a shelter will bring you new knowledge. Some shelters also take in pets other than dogs and cats, such as birds, rabbits, and guinea pigs, which volunteers may not have had an opportunity to learn about before.
4. You’ll make a difference: Because animal shelters have a lot of work and little funding, they often do not have the optimal amount of staff members. Volunteers are a major asset to shelters because they contribute their time for free, giving the shelters extra pairs of hands and affording more animals the care that they deserve.
