What did you like about RASKC volunteering?
I liked seeing so many people devote their time to helping all of these animals who need to be cared for. It was a nice community feeling and meeting new people from all ages who have a common interest in animals. This was very nice because they probably wouldn’t be people I would have met if it wasn’t for volunteering at RASKC.
What is something that you learned during RASKC volunteering?
I learned how to work with others to get things done. I had to communicate with everyone working there about which cats’ condos had already been cleaned or if a specific cat needed special medicine or food, etc..
Given the COVID quarantine, what is something that is helping you get through these unprecedented times?
What has been helping is working out. I get up and I run two miles, and then I do some ab workouts. The other things that have helped me stay occupied is finishing this quarter for school and working. I have so much free time now, but not as much once I start school again in the fall.
