  • 283 people are interested

Our shelter always needs volunteers...and here are just a few of the benefits of volunteering: Be part of the solution. You'll join a network of hundreds of thousands of people working to make the world safe and more humane for all living creatures. You'll make the jobs of everyone working for animals a little easier by lending a hand and spreading the message of responsible pet ownership. Get warm fuzzies. You'll never find a more grateful and accepting comrade than an animal you have comforted. Who can't use another loyal support in life? Keep good company. You'll make lots of new friends and not just the four-legged kind. Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge lifelong friendships. Meet the new you. You'll discover skills you never knew you had, and you may be surprised at what you're capable of achieving. Gain a new career. You'll learn things that may lead you to the of your dreams. Employers and college admissions officers look favorably on time spent in volunteer service. Enjoy a wagging tail, a purr, and a smile. Didn't someone once say that the best things in life are free? Interested? Great! Call the shelter at 978-422-8585 ext 114 or ask for our volunteer coordinator or email melissa@sterlingshelter.org
