I've wanted to volunteer for a while now, but funnily enough I'd had a hard time finding places to volunteer. Here in Iowa there aren't many options but I decided to start volunteering at the animal shelter here at town. It's so much fun playing with kitties and playing with the dogs. It feels good to give back to the community and play with furry friends. I've always wanted a dog so this is a good start for me. Instead of having all the responsibility of taking care of a pet 24/7 I can play with the animals that need love and attention without any commitment. It's perfect for some for someone like me who seems to be traveling and moving more than the average person.
