Volunteering at KSPCA

Volunteering at KSPCA

Written by Mercy, HHFL’s high school graduate and Brian Kangethe

Brian and I recently volunteered at the KSPCA (Kenya Society for the Protection and Caring of animals). Like in most parts of the world, the KSPCA cares for and houses vulnerable animals just like HHFL cares for and houses vulnerable kids.  I have a special love of animals so it was heart breaking to see so many animals, mainly cats and dogs, in such despair.

During our volunteer stint, Brian worked with the dogs and I worked with the cats. We cleaned cages, washed dishes, took the animals for walks and played with them. It is true that animals require as much love and attention as humans.

The KSPCA staff were very happy with our help and asked us to come back. We will certainly be volunteering as much as we can during our spare time! It feels good to be able to give back in some way, even if for animals. How I wish I could take them all home with me!
