I have been a volunteer at HSTB for almost five years. Shortly after I started, and told my wife all about it, she also became a volunteer there. We both love the place. We see first-hand, all the time, how much the staff really cares and works hard for the welfare of the animals. No place is a utopia when dealing with the immense, ongoing problem of homeless and/or abused animals. There are occasional failures and disappointments, but there are so many successes and happy endings that volunteering has been a truly rewarding experience and I would recommend it to anyone who cares enough to come in and help. "Volunteers" who are doing it just for school credit or to embellish their college applications or scholarship chances are not really volunteering - they are looking to get something: that's what I suspect is the situation with the anonymous commentator. You are never going to like EVERYBODY in a large group of people, but this group is strongly united in a common desire to make a difference in the lives of the animals and any one who is wanting to help can accomplish that at HSTB.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
