Volunteering is very rewarding. It allows you to donate your time to something you’re passionate about. For me, that’s cats. I grew up with two loving cats. Jasmine is a beautiful calico kitty. She will be 16 years old in August. She has little arthritis, but overall she’s doing really well. My other cat, Ellie, is a tabby kitty and she’s 10 years old. She loves to drink out of the faucet in the mornings.
It was during my sophomore year of college that I started volunteering at the humane society. I find this job very rewarding. I follow my humane society on Facebook. They often post updates of cats that have been adopted. It always makes me feel giddy inside when I see a picture of a cat I used to play with at the humane society. To find out that they are healthy, happy and in a good home is exciting.
Volunteering doesn’t have to take a lot of time out of your schedule. The humane society requires volunteering at least twice a month. There’s nothing better than going to play with cats after a long week. If there is something you’re passionate about, volunteer with that organization! It’s a really good experience and it’s rewarding in the long run. Volunteering gives me something to look forward to each and every week. Cats are my best friends and I can’t wait to own my own kitties someday.
