Opportunity: General Volunteer

Opportunity Profile

General Information

Opportunity Name:
General Volunteer
Summary of Opportunity:
Are you interested in getting involved in your community? One of the most rewarding places to volunteer is the animal shelter. The Aggieland Humane Society is always in need of volunteers whether you are able to spend a few hours a week, come in once a month or stop by daily.
Not only can you volunteer at the shelter, but you could help to foster animals that are not ready for adoption. These animals may need medical assistance or are just too young to adopt out.

* Be part of the solution. You'll join a network of people working to make the world safe and more humane for all living creatures. You'll make the jobs of everyone working for animals a little easier by lending a hand and spreading the message of responsible pet ownership.
* Get warm fuzzies. You'll never find a more grateful and accepting comrade than an animal you have comforted. Who can't use another loyal support in life?
* Keep good company. You'll make lots of new friends�and not just the four-legged kind. Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge lifelong friendships.
* Meet the new you. You'll discover skills you never knew you had, and you may be surprised at what you're capable of achieving.
* Gain a new career. You'll learn things that may lead you to the career or career change of your dreams. Employers and college admissions officers look favorably on time spent in volunteer service.
* Enjoy a wagging tail, a purr, and a smile. Didn't someone once say that the best things in life are free?
