I have been a volunteer at the Pet Animal Welfare of Society of Connecticut for three years now, and it continues to be a wonderfully rewarding experience. While I could work at a shelter that is literally a five minute walk from my door, I choose to drive the 30 minutes to PAWS because I am so proud of the work they do there. While the shelter in my neighborhood hand-picks pets, mostly from the South, that they deem "adoptable" in this community, PAWS works very hard to take in all area animals in need. They take the strays, the abandoned, the abused. I work with staff members and other volunteers who are dedicated to helping these animals trust in humans again so that they may be placed into forever homes. It is work that is endless, tiring, and sometimes emotionally difficult, but ultimately it is beautiful work that is done there, and I am proud to be a part of it.
