How do you stay strong when exposed to cases of neglect and abuse?
I have just begun volunteering at my local animal shelter. Do you have any advice on how to stay strong when exposed to cases of neglect and abuse? Preventing animal cruelty is my number-one priority, but it's very hard for me to continue when faced with such sad situations.
Great question, it’s important that you just be there for the animals who are neglected or abused. Give them the support and love they need to start a new life and help them forget their pasts. They need to see positivity in you, so don't let them down. Keep up the good work, Nikki. I know it’s not easy.
