Volunteering at Alaska Animal Shelter
Who doesn’t love animals? In my case, I am a huge dog lover, although from time to time I can fancy the feline pet. Now in Alaska the volunteer opportunities are rather limited due in part to the fact there simply isn’t a high population in Alaska. After doing some research I found the Gastineau Humane Center located in Juneau Alaska which was another perfect example of another amazing animal shelter, dedicated to serving both the canine and feline. I had a chance to volunteer cleaning dog bowls and folding cat blankets, overall, it was a lovely experience.
The summer in Alaska in was breathtaking with picturesque mountain tops, however the summer was short lived, and soon enough everyday was a cloudy day. I will never forget the moment I visited the bank teller in Alaska while I was completing my transaction , I had expressed to her my concerns about the minimal sunlight, and how I hadn’t seen it in weeks. She had advised me not worry , and assured me that it would be back next year. At that point I finally understood why so little decided to live in Alaska permanently, and I’m certain that, unless there’s some insanely amazing volunteer position, I will never come to call Alaska home expect in the summers.
