Helping Animals for Christmas

--by luciernagadelbo1, posted Jan 20, 2020
When I can, I volunteer at my animal rescue shelter on holidays, like Christmas.

Usually, the managers work this shift alone so other workers can have the time with family and friends.

I go unannounced with treats for the animals and the staff. I make sure to let everyone working that day know how much I appreciate what they do for the lives of homeless animals. And I clean kennels, feed animals and try to give a loving touch and kind words to each animal before I leave.

I always leave with a heart so full and light; the best present I can give myself.
