“It just feels good”
This is what my kiddo says about volunteering. While there are many different ways to volunteer and give back to the community, there aren’t too many things you can do with a young kiddo. This last summer we started volunteering at the local animal shelter. We do what’s considered “enrichment” (essentially, we play with the animals). It’s fun and easy, and it does feel good. We also fostered 10 kittens over a 6 month period (and managed to adopt only 2!). Lately we go to the shelter on the weekends and play with animals and take dogs for walks. Now that it’s getting to be puppy and kitten season, there are plenty of cute little cuddly babies that need socializing and we’re happy to help!
