The Bonaire Animal Shelter needs volunteers of all ages. And it’s a fun job too, according to young volunteers, Jordan and Justin. These two boys spend their Thursday afternoons helping out. They especially like playing with the cats. Why do they do this rather than playing video games or fooling around? It’s because, they say, “Animals are important and they need our help.” Great words for all of us! There are all sorts of jobs that volunteers can do from just playing with the dogs and cats (“socializing” they call it) to walking them and giving some obedience training, feeding, giving medications, cleaning up. For a full list of what’s available to do give them a call at 717-4989.
