My first Doggie volunteer assignment!

I am so excited! Remember when I said I was going for different volunteering opportunities. Well I only managed to do one. Which was the translating one that I had put the link on one of my post.

Unfortunately I couldn’t continue because I don’t have a computer or laptop. They require for the articles to be submitted at a certain timeĀ frame and on a word document. Well the library opens here way to late since the website administrators are on Central Time versus Pacific time. So I had to tell them I could no longer do it.

So I have been searching, and I submitted two more opportunities and only one replied back.

They are called Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue! They need people to take the dogs to appointments and for the volunteers to go on house inspections to see if the families or person meet the requirement to be able to adopt the dogs.

Well I filled out my waiver and application and I got first assignment! I will be inspecting a potential home for one of the sheltered dogs! Hubby printed out the paperwork that I need to take with me.

I’m so nervous! I’ve never done something like this before. Who knows maybe this is something I can do more often if they have the schedule that fits my time frame.

Wish me luck!

Until Next Time,

Volunteering Frustration

Today I am a bit sad. I was going to put in an application to volunteer at Casa LA, which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates for children.

I have been trying to do more volunteer work since I am staying at work. I tried going to our mosque but it just doesn’t feel like I am doing much help. I want to help people not just help them sign in their names on a piece a paper. Don’t get me wrong that is a good thing but I just know that it isn’t for me.

So I went to volunteer match website, to see if I can find something for me. I had but not having a computer makes it hard.

So I found CASA and the RED CROSS, instead of signing up for both I decided to first try CASA. Helping children in their time of need and trying to make sure they are protected was something I really wanted to do.

Unfortunately there is a two year commitment that I have to do. I can’t because if my husband gets transferred or gets a promotion we would have to move I don’t want to be involved with a child and then having to leave them suddenly.

Its unfair to the child and to the case. So I sent the email letting the coordinator know I wasn’t going to submit my application due to not meeting one requirement.

Now I am looking at the RED CROSS and am hoping that this goes well. I already have the date to do the orientation so I hope that after I do that I am approved to work along side the organization.

Wish me luck on my volunteer hunting!

Until Next Time,
