Animal volunteering opportunities in the area?

<p>Ok, call me crazy but I could have sworn that I saw something about walking dogs on campus as volunteers or something but for the life of me, I can't find anything. </p>

<p>Does anyone know of any places on or close to campus where we can volunteer with animals? I miss my dog so much and I think it would be a great way to relax for me. Apparently, the Capital Area Humane Society is booked solid with volunteers so I'm looking outside of that. </p>

<p>Thanks :)</p>

<p>my best friend's cousin works at an animal shelter of some sort and I seem to recall her talking about being able to walk dogs there...I'll ask and get back to you!</p>

<p>There use to be a dog walking program for the dogs at the Vet Med building but I haven't seen anything about that recently. The last time the website was updated was like in 2008.</p>

<p>CAHS has a lot of volunteers but they won't turn you away. It is an issue getting there though since it is on the other side of Lansing and I don't think the buses run that way. You can join ZSA and get rides there though.</p>

<p>I have my own car and I work in Lansing lol. But thank you for that info!</p>

<p>Ingham County Animal Control in Mason likes volunteers to walk dogs. It would probably be around 10 miles from East Lansing.</p>
