Q: A question About Shelters
I am A 10 year old girl who knows alot about dogs. I know almost every dog breed and can name a dog breed when she sees it even if its a mix. But what im wondering is if there is a shelter out there who lets kids 10 years and up volunteer? I already volunteer at catnap but i also want to work for a dog shelter. I know some dogs may bite and i know how to handle dogs. IS THERE A SHELTER LOOKING FOR 10 YEAR OLD VOLUNTEER???

Hi! A lot of shelters in the western suburbs do allow kids 10 years and up to volunteer but they need an adult to volunteer with them. Check out Animal Care League in Oak Park and Naperville Humane Society in Naperville. Another great way to get in some dog experience is to foster for a local rescue or shelter. I volunteered with Magnificent Mutts in Hillside for a while a few summers ago. They frequently have young puppies that need temporary care homes. Good luck!

i do not know where you are from but i would go to your local shelter and explain to them your situation... i would also look up rescues in your area and see if they need any help.... i think that it is awesome that you are interested in giving back to these dogs and i am sure that if you keep trying and investigating someone will allow you to follow your dream
