Why do I volunteer? Because BSAS lives up to their name, they are a sanctuary to the residents there. You come to see them as individuals with their own personalities, quirks, and as sentient beings. There’s not any other agenda and no one has told me I have to do/be so and so to volunteer here. All they care about is the well being of the residents and giving them the best life possible. You also always learn something new at the sanctuary and to be in the presence of so many people who are so compassionate and empathetic only makes you think that if the world was filled with people like these we would be alright.
That I'm pretty much always late showing up, the horse run-ins are my go-to chore, and I rarely ever turn down food just like the piggles there :)
