Pros: played with adorable puppies
This is just some volunteer experience, therefore a typical day at Pet Food Express holding adoptions were sometimes hectic. Adorable puppies playing and loads of families searching for their ideal pet. From this volunteer experience, I learned that patience is key. Looking for a new pet to adopt can be hard, and before settling down with a new puppy, you need to be aware of what you're taking home. Therefore, some customers took quite a while to decide if this animal was what they wanted. I also learned simple responsibilities, such as cleaning up and setting up, making sure the puppy was well fed and cleaned after, and that customers were given plenty of information on the puppy. The other former volunteers were quite friendly too, and helped me since they had experience working with this company. There wasn't any hard part of the job, I enjoyed every bit of it. The puppies were extremely adorable and seeing a family bring home a new family member was quite enjoyable.
