As a cat cuddler, you are given the job to show pets to potential adopters and to give them affection. But, you have to wash your hands between cats because of health standards. It is challenging working with the ringworm cats because of health procedure to make sure the cat's progress is not inhibited and that you do not get the disease as well. Overall, I enjoy sending a cat home to their new family which they will get the love and affection they deserve.

The most enjoyable part of working at SPCA is working with the animals. The hard part is when the animals get adopted when u get attached to them, I have really nice co-workers and you get to meet different people. I learned that its different ways to help animals with there behaviors and to find new homes

I have volunteered for the MD SPCA for over three years. It is an enjoyable experience, as I am able to spend quality time and be a companion for the abandoned, surrendered and abused animals. I get to interact with people, young and elderly. The people I work alongside with are giving, friendly and selfless. I also volunteer during events the MD SPCA organizes. The hardest part is putting myself in the animal's place; where that animal has been/has gone through, and not being able to give all of the animals a great home! The most enjoyable part would be the freedom I have to spend as much time as I choose to spend with as many animals as I feel. The organization is managed well and the money raised during events/other operations goes strictly to feed, vaccinate, and help give the animals an enjoyable and comfortable place to live until they are adopted.
