Animal shelters are not always sad places where one can feel the harmful effects of euthanasia and abuse on the morale of volunteers. Since some associations have decided not to get rid of non-adoptable animals, there has been a resurgence of good humor in the shelters. Volunteers are more numerous, and they can surrender to the countless joys due to their daily interaction with animals by saying that they really improve the lives of these endearing companions.
If you've ever considered volunteering your time at a shelter, here are 20 photos to help you decide. Because life with abandoned animals is not just cleaning cages, sometimes critical care for injured animals and other thankless tasks. A large part of the volunteers' work consists of simply spending time with the animals, who only ask for that.
Here are 20 photos taken by volunteers to document the hectic life of a shelter. And if you then want to learn more or get involved, consult these sites or contact your local SPA, we will understand you …
