Hi sweetie. U sound awesome. I did so much volunteer work when I was ur age. What u need to do is ask ur parents if they have a phone book around the house. Look up Vets, and Any animal hospital u can find. Also u can look up SPCA’s (animal shelters) also a great one would be a place that does boarding care for animals. Thats a place, (most of the time someones home)where people going on vaction take there animals to, so that they can be cared for while the owners are on vaction. They do things like feed them, play with them, walk them, talk to them, try to train them to do tricks, brush them and give them baths… all sortsa things. Call around and see if anyone is looking for a Volunteer worker. Tell them about yourself and what u like and what u are able to do for them. Chances are u will be given alot of things to do and at a few different places and pretty soon if u show that ur a hard worker then they may just hire u. Also when u get old enough to have a real job, volunteer work looks GREAT on a resume!. When u get a job (even volunteering) do it the best way u can. Work hard and prove yourself. U will see that 1)u get taught so many things u never new before 2) u get to meet ppl and help out animals and 3) it just feels so good leanding a helping hand.
You can also write up something to give to each of these companies. Make a letter that sounds so awesome that NO ONE can refuse. Send it to all the companies in which u wanna work at. U cant go wrong. Good Luck and I hope I have helped u. U can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if u need help with the letter or need other pointers. Also most important… in all that hard work Dont forget to have fun too;)
