Inkeri Lilja - Visitor
I was travelling in SE-Asia for three months with my partner. For me it gets boring if i just hang around for too long and I also wanted to give back something for the world for being so priviliged that I have the chance to travel!
As I work at home with caring for people I wanted to do something different. I found the clinic on the internet and send them a message about volunteering. I got a "We are grateful for all the help we get. Welcome" message back.
For five weeks I volunteered 5-6 days a week and about 2-4 hours a day. I cleaned, walked dogs and cats, socialised and trained(and hugged and kissed) them, talked to visitors, helped with the shop and helped the staff with caring for the sick animals.
I learned a lot about dog and cat behaviour and about the veterinary work. After all I got more then I gave.
I will mis all the two and four legged personalities I met during my time with the clinic. Thank you!
