With Christmas break approaching, I have been thinking about what I will do with my extra time. I will be working full time to save up as much money as possible, but I need something else to keep my busy. Since I can not donate to the ASPCA anymore, I was thinking maybe I will try to get involved with a volunteer animal foundation of some sort.
When the Southern California fires were still ablaze, one of my classes assigned a project to blog about something related to the fires. I wanted to do the animal aspect, then a classmate informed me of a foundation called Noah’s Wish. I interviewed a woman who worked there, and she told me a lot about the organization. Originally, I was interested about an event that Noah’s Wish organized with Station Casinos to collect items for the animals rescued from the fires. It turned into an interview about Noah’s Wish itself.
The interview covered what they do, how they do it and, using the California Fires as an example, how they deal with disasters. Anyone may listen to the interview by clicking here and pressing the play button in the gray box to the right.
The interview made me interested in volunteering for them, so I read about their volunteer program on the website. I found that they conduct their own training sessions for those who volunteer. They give you a complete list of dates, places, and times of when they will do their next in-field training.
I am seriously considering this option. I am going to try to get in touch with them some time next. If you are interested in volunteering, check out their website! I would think that they will take all the help they can get.I will keep you posted about what happens!
