VOLUNTEER! We would like to appeal to all Medicine Cards readers and encourage people to please make efforts to help the animal welfare organizations in their communities. There are millions of abandoned and unwanted animals in the United States. Any and all efforts by individuals to help pay for the costs of neutering and caring for this population will help. And even one hour spent at your local shelter can help ease the lives of animals in these crowded environments. Walking, petting or even talking to shelter dogs and cats will help socialize these animals and make them more easily adoptable. Most animal shelters have volunteer programs in place and their staff are eager to train people to help with the animals. Help an animal today – they in turn will enrich your life!
