I just sent in my application to become a volunteer at the shelter where my BF and I got our puppy Max back in October.

I have been thinking lately of how heartbreaking it is to think of all of the poor animals who desperatly need a loving home. I wanted to make a difference and I figured this was the best place to start!! Hopefully I will be able to work at the shelter at least twice a week if not more!!

YAY!! :yahoo:

If you guys have any free time I urge you to try and volunteer or at least donate to an animal shelter, every bit really does count!

I will keep you posted!!

I am a dog walker at our local shelter -- to echo the above comments I highly recommend it! It's a great feeling to get the big dogs out and exercise them. Plus, they are teaching me so much about training and just overall becoming a better pack leader :smile:

I submitted a proposal to the NC Department of Corrections several years ago that lead to the NLOL coming to our county this Spring. Unfortunately physical problems prevent me from being involved as I wish I could be, but it's a huge warm fuzzy to see it come to fruition! I'm really hopeful that my upcoming surgery will fix the mess the other quack made of me and I can spend some time at the prison unit working with the inmates and the dogs. In the meantime though, it feels good to get periodic reports that it's going so well! :smile:

These are two of the first four trainers and one of the first two NLOL dogs that I snapped a pic of during the Kick Off ceremony in April. :love:

Congratulations! :yahoo: I would love to do that but unfortunately I have very little time for anything this year so I'm going to wait until it's possible for me to do so. I have always wanted to volunteer at a shelter and I know one day I will do it!

Please let us know how it goes, alright? :nuts: :flowers:
