Spotlight on Volunteer Sam S. 

Sam writes: I love volunteering at Motley Zoo because:


1. They are 100% committed to their mission and it shows. They take no chances when it comes to the safety of both animals and volunteers. They invest time in training their volunteers to understand and embody MZAR's mission, understand how to work with animals, and understand how best to stay clean and safe.

2. Every time I volunteer, I feel like I am making a significant difference to an animal's life. 

3. I love spending time with dogs, but I can't have a dog of my own right now. Volunteering is my way of giving back, and getting my weekly dog fix :)  Plus, all the other volunteers /workers are awesome, genuine, thoughtful and caring human beings - and there's an wholesome work environment every shift.

4. A bonus is that MZAR's principles on how we treat this planet strongly align with my own. They are very careful in their use of chemicals and disposable products while ensuring that they never compromise on safety.

It makes me so happy to volunteer here, that I feel like I should be paying Motley Zoo for the privilege!
