My girls really want to volunteer with an animal rescue shelter (SPCA, etc) in some way... I know that they want them to be at least 16 before they volunteer (and I understand that there are liability issues and valid safety concerns) but are there any possible ways they can be involved now? We talked a bit about fundraising, and that's something we're going to see about pursuing, but does anyone know if there's the possibility of direct service? Anyone have younger kids who have helped out in some way?
Just to be clear: I wouldn't put my kids in an unsafe situation, and I respect that the SPCA wouldn't either. Obviously volunteering at a shelter would be a very different situation for a 6 year old than it is for a 16 year old. Hence my question. :-)
