Yesterday was the very first day my parents and I began volunteering at the animal shelter. We walked 3 dogs, Sprite, General and Dakota. It was fun, but it was really cold. I got to walk Sprite all the way around. She was a husky mix. It was really fun. Sprite cuddled with me a lot!!
When we got back we needed to warm up, so we went to see the cats and kittens. I felt bad for them being in those cages, especially the family of cats.
It was time to leave the cat room, so we went to see if we needed to walk another dog and we did. I was not allowed to walk him though, he was too energetic and all muscle. I was sad, but I also did NOT want to be a human parachute. So I let my parents take turns.
After the walk, my mom said I did so well that I could play with the cats in the glass room. They were flocking around me. I felt so LOVED!!!
I still don’t really like being in Saskatchewan. I still want to go home. I realized I should be glad that I’m helping the poor animals though here. By doing this I realized all animals are not being treated the way they should be. People are dropping them off at animal shelters and leaving them. I hope people become responsible going to buy or adopt an animal. There were too many of them there.
There is also a benefit to volunteering at the animal shelter- KITTY-KAT HEAVEN.
