Volunteers at an animal shelter have one of the best jobs.
Some people may not agree with this because volunteers don’t really get paid so we can’t technically call it a job. However, if you are an animal lover and want to help animals in whatever way you can, an animal shelter is a great place. Not only will you be able to spend your whole day around animals but also help them find loving families. And let us not forget about people who rescue animals.
So if you have ever adopted an animal from a shelter and have some time on your day, why not help the hard workers at a shelter. All of the people at the shelter are doing it out of the kindness of their hearts and most don’t get paid. But there are so many people in this world who don’t take care of their pets properly and thus these animals are always in need of a new family. Especially if the particular animal was abandoned.
#1 I love the fluffy ears.
This fluffy boy came into the shelter I work at.
#2 The best kind of burrito.
My local animal shelter posted this little purrito.
#3 These sloths clearly need no tree.
I fulfilled one of my life dreams this summer…I got to volunteer with sloths!
#4 It is raining golden retrievers.
Local shelter posted these little ones on FB. Titled ‘Golden Raindrops in April.’
#5 He is thinking of something pretty important.
#6 Jinkies look so excited.
This is ‘Jinkies’. She came to our animal rescue facility with her brother and sister after they were found by an individual. She has a genetic eye condition which makes her partially blind. That doesn’t stop her though!
#7 This is the fluffiest bed ever.
#8 Just look at how content he looks.
#9 He honestly looks like a flower because of his fur.
I work for an animal shelter so sometimes I foster kittens. Meet Sunflower.
#10 How looks so adorable.
This very young Albino Squirrel turned up at the wildlife hospital I used to volunteer at.
Shelters always need more people no matter what. So if you have free time, why not join a shelter and help the animals and the people who work there. After all, what is better than spending your whole day with animals? I don’t know about you but that sounds like heaven to me.
#11 Just look at that big smile.
My mom volunteers for an animal rescue. She sent me this.
#12 ‘I want treats.’
I was photographing dogs for the humane society and out of nowhere, this dog attacked me.
#13 This seems like heaven to me.
A volunteer at our local cat rescue turned on the vacuum.
#14 Is the beaver biting the person?
I volunteer at a wildlife rehab. This is our 1-year-old beaver giving me a hug because she missed me over the winter..or maybe she wanted the apple I had.
#15 This is the best sort of sibling relationship ever.
I volunteer at an animal shelter. This brother and sister gave me lots of feels.
#16 Owls honestly have such gorgeous eyes.
I love my job. This is Furby, one of our educational screech owls at the Wildlife Rehabilitation I volunteer at.
#17 This right here is a little kangaroo.
#18 They are only 2 weeks old and they look adorable.
#19 This is Sunday and Vicky.
#20 I would be overpowered but the cuteness overload as well.
My daughter volunteered at our local shelter, helping feed the puppies. She was taken down and overpowered by adorableness.
#21 Yes, this is indeed a curly mouse.
