I did my vol orientation at OR Humane Soc. Today.

From 9 to 3 I was in volunteer orientation. Learning about the organization and some hands on training. Now I do a session with a mentor the get to be a dog walker. Other things too, like helping with fundraising, admin support and such. Also want to do the kitty stuff too.

1. I used to walk dogs ata shelter until they got screwed by a mnistake of taking aid fromthe city.

Once the city decided to use them for animal control, they moved them to a beautiful building and then informed them they became a kill shelter. They could not get their old build back because it was torn down and now need volunteer foster homes.
Do you get orange spray to keep the dog away from you? I never needed to use it, the dogs were all sweet even though they said some were biters, or mean, I never had a problem.

Enjoy your self it is such a happy volunteer job.

2. That is a good thing.

You will feel good about yourself for doing it. If I ever retire, that is number one on the list of things that I want to do. (Minus the fundraising---I have done that with many organizations and it is a ton of work.)

3. I have been a volunteer for 2 1/2 years

I never get tired of going in; it's the highlight of my week. Mine is a no-kill shelter so all we see most of the time are happy endings. It feels good to help a worthy cause.

4. It is so rewarding to know

that a lonely dog feels better because of a walk and some attention.
