“I wanted to be a vet when I was a kid.”
But it warms my soul down to my toes when people volunteer their talents purely for the joy of caring for animals in need.
Sure, vets have their place in animal care and many volunteer regularly with charitable organizations, such as worldvets.org.
But there are so many ways to volunteer your talents to help animals – it’s not all about being a veterinarian.
- Some people help animals by fostering homeless pets (and there are more homeless pets every day) through rescue organizations.
- Some raise or donate funds to help those rescue organizations.
- Others repair the computers of the fundraisers. Or they update websites, stuff flyers, collect pet food and blankets, man a booth, run a charity race, or adopt a pet from petfinder.com.
Everyone has some talent they can offer that has a positive effect on the lives of animals.
During this season of gratitude, I recognize you, fellow animal lovers, for the things you do to help care for animals in need. I know the joy you receive in return makes it all worthwhile and this world a better place. Thank you!
