    Welcome Chris

    Very glad you've posted an intro. Do you have a pet dog? Do you like dogs?

    Hi Hyacinth,

    I don't have my own pet dog, because me and my family are always moving from one region to another. I do like dogs very much, and because I like them so much, I decided to work as a volunteer at an animal rescue charity org. here in Cebu. I've just started a month a go.

    Hi Chris

    I think it's great that you are volunteering at a rescue. Do you get to "foster" dogs ie bring them home with you occasionally or is that not permitted where you are staying? What other creatures besides dogs are at the rescue?

    Hi Hyacinth,

    Thank you, Volunteers are allowed to foster dogs that we rescue but unfortunately I can't foster because I still live with my parents and the landlord of the house would not allow any pets... Aside from dogs we also rescue cats.

    Hi Chris,

    I think it's awesome that you are volunteering to help out dogs though bummer about the living situation. I've also spent my life moving house all the time so I know it can be destabilising. At least you can get to know lots of different animals and make a real difference to their lives and well-being. If you are in a different situation in the future you will be able to give one of them a home. I have always had dogs but I have faced a lot of challenges with housing because landlords seem to have a problem with them... Molly and I have slept in some pretty out there places as a result! we even lived in the car for a while.
