On September 7th, our team volunteered at the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter in New Jersey for their Annual Service Day.
When we arrived at the shelter, we were split into groups to do different tasks including assembling new dog and cat beds, cleaning cages and carriers and mopping floors. The best part was getting the tour of the shelter so we could see all the animals and playing with them after.
A few of our colleagues shared their thoughts on the experience:
"The amount of work that goes into running a shelter was eye-opening. I was honored to be able to help take a small load off the workers shoulders, who have committed themselves to helping these amazing animals." Kevin R.
"Volunteering for the day at Mount Pleasant Animal Shelter was such a rewarding experience. We were exposed to all of the ins and outs of running the shelter and even got the chance to interact with a couple of animals while we were there!" Kait S.
"I am grateful for the opportunity presented by EverythingBenefits to volunteer at Mt Pleasant Animal Shelter. Our group was able to learn the inner-workings of an animal shelter and alleviate some of the daily tasks done by the staff. It was a fulfilling experience and I look forward to our next opportunity to volunteer and work with animals. " Laura S.
We all were very grateful for the opportunity to help a cause we feel strongly about and looking forward to visiting children's hospital and a food bank next!
