That very well may be. I'm offering a perspective where I know that some volunteers are encouraged to do, do, do....it's hard for some people to say NO. On the other hand, some people need to feel needed or they cannot function. A dysfunctional reason to do things is a way of avoiding dealing with oneself. I'm not saying don't volunteer. I do hair for free sometimes...too may times...it's something I can offer someone, but volunteering isn't something that I need to make me feel worthwhile.
Regardin Sherry's original enquiry, from my perspective, (and this isn't behind her back because she'll be reading) needs to do something for herself that doesn't require commitment or obligation to another person.
I only base that on what I observe.
It's awesome you're working with animals...there is always a need.
