Nothing toku related this time guys. Just plugging in a cause that I believe in / lay a guilt trip.
Most of you don't know this, but recently I've started volunteering at the local animal shelter. At our city, this is especially important because the city's really poorly managed and a few years ago the shelter was taken over by mostly volunteers, since the city couldn't find the money to fund it anymore.
And volunteering is really important for animal support, especially in the case of dogs.
The dogs are kept in these two part cages that can be separated by a guillotine. Since a lot of these dogs are off the street, they don't quite get the concept that they poop/pee on one side and sleep/eat on the other. It can get really messy sometimes.
What I do is called canine support. I go in for two hours a week and basically just walk as many dogs as I can. Typically dogs go for a walk for 20 minutes.
Now here's the guilt trip. Imagine going to a job where your 15 minute break was the only time you were let outside of your cubicle (also you get a private toilet, but it's in your cubicle, and the toilet doesn't flush). Plus you sleep in your cubicle.
That 15 minutes outside would be pretty sweet right?
If more people volunteer, more dogs can go outside and get some exercise. It's always good to get more sunlight and exercise.
So go down to your local shelter and help out. They take old cloth for beddings and food like peanut butter or whatever too. You might make a furry friend along the way.
