I will be starting my volunteering again on Saturday after the orientation. I want to help as much as I can so can anyone tell me which direction would help the most?

I'm doing the orientation this Saturday and will try to outline all the opportunities as much as possible, but here are a couple more suggestions: I think Shannon would agree w/ me that the front desk is often the busiest spot in the shelter, and if you're ok with office work even learning a few of the tasks like answering phones or how to direct the incoming public toward the right forms can really help take pressure off the staff. And after you get reacquainted with the animals, we definitely need more help in the area of adoption counseling - helping people find and meet their new family member is very rewarding but if you're doing it thoroughly it is also pretty time-intensive. And if you make sure to include on your volunteer application all your areas of interest, as well as skills/experience/networking, then the volunteer coordinator can better match you with opportunities as they come up. Hope that helps, see you Saturday!
