Dogs show more appreciation than cats , when I was at the shelter dogs that were being adopted were so excited...a cat shows no emotion lol....I would be crying on my way home if I took a dog for a walk, couldn't do it...but thank god for people like you...thank you very much for doing a worthwhile job.
@Strofan : do it! Nothing to "check into". Just show up and enjoy the company of several dogs as you walk them from their crates to outdoor fenced-in play areas...one at a time. They will *LOVE* you for it.
@cabeuser : I would call ahead to confirm the current policy. But they may be OK with people volunteering simply to walk the dogs from inside to outside without training. It kinda depends upon how involved you want to be: help people adopt? etc.
