We can not run the shelter without Volunteers
1. Meet new friends
you will be surrounded by people who love animals as much as you do, and they might even become lifelong friends.
2. Your efforts will help an animal get ready and increase its chances for a new home
Animals that appear happy and healthy have a bigger chance to be adopted.Our shelter animals need lots of love and attention. At Wollies we have a lovely walking trail where you can take our animals for a walk.
3.Boost your mood and health
Volunteering gives us a sense of satisfaction for helping others. It lowers stress, makes you feel needed and appreciated, increase happiness andmuch more. It is a feel good activity and what better way to spend the day than with furry friends.
5.Trying something new is fun
A new activity can be exciting an a change of pace for a mundane or repetitive schedule. Why not make that something new be volunteering??
You will gain a host of other benefits and the rush of happiness when a pet you helped get a new FOREVER home.
4. Gain experience
Young adults can become better acquainted with animals, experience responsibility and gain reference for employers or tertiary institutions. Working adults can include it on their resume. Someone who is unemployed can get a boost of self esteem and confidence by being part of a team.
6. Stay active
Being a volunteer keeps your mind, body and emotions active and healthy.
7. Become part of an important team
Animal shelters need money and people to stay open. Some of them face closure constantly. YOU could be one of those extra hands that help another pet get adopted
