Charity Miles Champion Stacy Clark, logs her Charity Miles for the ASPCA, WHILE walking shelter dogs!!!! Volunteering and earning money at the same time.
I love volunteering my time with shelter dogs. I cannot begin to explain the feeling you get when a disheartened, lonely dog gives you a kiss and crawls into your lap, just absorbing your affection like a sponge, or how much fun it is to see the excitement of a dog about to head on a walk or play fetch.
Volunteering at the shelter is not only a fun way to give back, but also a wonderful way to feed your own soul. I get back just as much as I give when I am at the shelter. Nothing brings me more joy than to bring the joy out of them!
I am currently volunteering my time at Pet Refuge, a not-for-profit “no-kill” animal shelter located in South Bend, Indiana. What I love most about Pet Refuge is that they are determined to find a loving family for every pet, regardless of their age or any special needs they may have. They have truly made it their mission to find all the pets in their care a special, forever home.
You can help dogs in need by volunteering at a shelter near you! Visit ASPCA’s website to find a shelter near you.
