More Animal Lovers Needed
I volunteer at the Prince George’s County Animal Management Office on Brown Station Road in Bowie. Many times I am the only volunteer there. This is a huge difference from the AA SPCA in Eastport. At any given time, there were five to 10 other volunteers there with me. Lots of these Prince George’s dogs are housebroken, surrendered due to foreclosure or eviction. Seeing them frantic to go outside in the morning is heartbreaking.
For people in Deale and much of Southern Anne Arundel County, the shelter is only 18 minutes away (a lot closer than any other). Students who volunteer get credit toward community service. Walking dogs is a great way for folks to keep their New Year’s resolutions of helping others, getting healthy, being kind or just scooping a little more poop than they did last year.
The next training is Saturday, December 22 at 10am at 3750 Brown Station Rd., Bowie: 301-780-7201. We’d love to see you there!
