I am incredibly excited and proud to say that I am now officially a rabbit wrangler with the humane society here! Alpha Gam really encouraged my love of philanthropic work, and I love animals, so the humane society is a pretty perfect for me. I’m hoping to eventually volunteer with dogs, but those positions are impossible to get, and I do love the rabbits, too 🙂 I find none of the shifts are terribly long, and there are always adorable rabbits traipsing around.
I’m finding it particularly engaging for a few reasons! I started a new job at work that is quite a bit more difficult, so playing with the bunnies is a nice way to unwind at the end of the day. It is also a great feeling to see the animals out and about, and then finding their furever homes. There will always be organisations that need your time and effort, and you never know the difference that you might make in someone’s, or some animal’s, life! I am incredibly fortunate, and I believe what goes around comes around. Put some pawsitive (the puns aren’t stopping, my friends) energy out into the world, and find something that interests you! If you are looking for a tangible reason to volunteer, you might be able to learn and build skills that will help you with your career or another area of your life that you might otherwise never have had. You also might just get some good feelings out of it!
Do you volunteer anywhere? What do you do there?
