Today my 13 year old son and I went through training at our local animal shelter, so that we could volunteer to help with the animals. I love animals, but we don’t have any pets at our house right now. Little AoA is afraid of animals. I believe this will be a fun opportunity for me to spend some time with animals without adopting.
Teen son is suppose to be interacting with animals as part of his therapy work. We tried equine therapy, but he wouldn’t participate. Today, he did stand with our training group, and hear the instructions. He wouldn’t really interact with the dog we walked. He did go into the cat room today! He took a picture of a couple cats, and even did a little petting!
This could be the start of something good!
