Broadening their perspectives
Teens learn life and job skills through the Humane Society’s volunteer program
Tuesday, September 10, 2013
It has been said that if one wants to broaden their perspective on life, volunteering is the way to begin. Several local teens are doing just that by making a difference in the lives of homeless animals.
Eric Hou, Malini Naidu and Julia Bedont, all of Camas, participate in the Humane Society for Southwest Washington’s teen volunteer program.
With only 30 spots available each term, and approximately 80 applicants, it’s a highly competitive process.
Hou, 16, was motivated to apply because of his love for animals.
“I have a dog of my own, so it really made me want to help animals who don’t have a home,” he said. “They really need love and attention.”
