I volunteer 16hrs a week and my days are filled with so much joy, that only an animal can bring.

I can honestly say that my life automatically improved when I began to help improve the lives of animals.

I’m so proud and thankful that CDCH allow me to fulfil what I now know is my calling in life.”

I volunteered on Saturday mornings for 7 years until last year when I was promoted to  Deputy Manager!

For anyone thinking of volunteering, I would say go for it. It’s interesting and fun.
