fun volunteering experience
I volunteered full time at the local Blue Cross Charity Shop where my responsibilities were to offer great service to our customers and their pets, maintain the shop floor at tidy and friendly conditions as well as stocking up when needed, decorating shop windows and working in the stock room.

Welcoming and enjoyable
A typical day at work would include cleaning, socialising with the cats and dogs and walking dogs. I have become more educated in working with animals since joining bluecross. The job is very hardwork but it is very enjoyable, and I love to help out.
Pros
Working with animals
Cons
Long hours

Fun, friendly place to work
It's so lovely to work with all the animas in need. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to see animals get rehomed with their new families. It's very rewarding and the staff that work there are all so friendly.

Pros
good staff

If you love animals here's the place to go!
You looked after a variety of animals and they are very understanding. You learn everything you need to know about cats and other domestic animals. The work place is a comfortable place and the staff are friendly.

No day was the same as the day before
I worked mainly every Monday morning along side college, 9am until 1:00PM was my usual time slot although sometimes the hours and days changed. Monday mornings were slow to begin with, until about 11 people started coming in, bringing things in to donate, buying things or talking to us about what we as a charity do and where the money goes, also about any events we had coming up, it was an enjoyable experience and i really enjoyed it.
I learnt a lot about everyday people and the similarities of different people which really changed the way I saw things in life.

All of the other volunteers, and the managers where awesome! I got along really well with everyone!
Pros
Meeting new people, 1 hour lunches
