These events are usually on Saturdays for a few hours. We volunteer either at a local animal shelter or at a meet & greet social for rescued animals. Our volunteer work involves supervising the animals, assisting with their care, advocating for their welfare, and of course, playing with them. Most recently, we volunteered at a dog adoption event hosted by Forgotten Friends, a nonprofit dedicated to rescuing mixed breed dogs from kill shelters. Volunteers helped hold onto leashes and take care of the dogs while potential adopters came up to interact with them. Volunteers also communicated adoption information to attendees with the hope that the dogs would find good homes. It was one of our favorite events this past year and something we plan on doing again!
