Where Are Some Animal Shelters In Orange County Where A 12 Year Old Can Volunteer?

I love animals like dogs and cats and have been asking many different animal shelters in Orange County, California if I can volunteer there if I am accompanied by a parent. Do you know any animal shelters that will allow a 12 year old to volunteer there? Thank You!

The people at Orange County animal shelters, Humane Society, ASPCA, dog rescue associations and other animal-focused groups are going to have more information than people on Yahoo Answers, so give each a call yourself. You can find them in the Yellow pages and via Google searches.

Pretty much no place in the country will let people under 18 volunteer unless it’s part of a group activity like scouts, or a church group or something. It’s mainly a liability issue; honestly speaking, most people your age aren’t all that mature, even though you probably are (since you’ve been so dedicated at looking in the first place) and the agencies are afraid you’d get hurt and they’d get sued. Maybe you can get a group of others together to do a project at an animal shelter. Another thing to try, maybe a veterinarian’s office? You can talk to the vet one on one, and ask if you could do like an internship, or something. There might even be someone at your school who can help you find a place, since agencies are more likely to accept you if you come through a school or other organization like a church or scouts.
