Have any of you ever volunteered to walk dogs or keep cats company at the rescue home?

I am a SAHM, whos virtually redundant now dds are at school, and I thought this might be a good idea for a few hours a week.
Have you ever done it, still do it?
I dont need anymore animals, so dont want to get attached to any little mutt, but is it inevitable?

No, it's not inevitable, and a great way to volunteer!

My ILs foster dogs and cats - MIL is retired and FIL works part-time.

If you live near an RSPCA you can go and walk the dogs for them, I did this for a short while when I finished uni, (to try and get fot more than anything else, im not really into dogs)

You do a training session (sounds mad I know) then you can go and walk them at pre arranged times. You can walk diff dogs or the same ones so you don't have to get attached.
