Tim Bajno Service Reflection

For the last couple of weeks, I have been volunteering at the Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  In the evenings, I would help walk dogs along with many other locals who volunteer for dog walking on a regular basis.  I have actually been going to the shelter for quite a long time because the owner is very close friends with my parents.  Over the years, I have developed strong relationships with both the animals as well as the employees there.  I think it’s really important for people to volunteer at the shelter because a lot of these animals do not receive the same care and affection they would if the animals had a permanent home.  I was also very pleased to see the number of individuals who volunteer at the shelter consistently as it made me realize the dedication and awareness of my own neighborhood.  If I was not walking dogs, I would usually clean the cages/containers or take care of the cats.  I really enjoy going to the shelter because I think it’s very important for such animals to receive proper care before they find a family.
