Volunteering at Happy Dogs has been one of the best experiences of my life. I think I would have to write an essay to describe how much I loved it.
Caring for 14 dogs truly becomes caring for your own doggies, so if you love dogs like me, you are in it for the love. I have fallen in love with these dogs, that thinking about leaving them brought tears to my eyes and still does. You get to live with like-minded people that love dogs and nature as much as you do! And you get to disconnect from the city life while doing something extremely rewarding.
