One thing I always think about at the start of the year is volunteering more. As a dog lover, of course my first thought is getting involved with a local rescue group. If you have been thinking about doing this, a few area groups are holding orientations in the next week so you can find out more information about getting involved.
The Berea Animal Rescue Fund will hold its volunteer orientation on Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. at the Strongsville Library. ARF will also host another one Feb. 15 at the Berea Library. To find out more visit: http://bereaanimalrescue.com/volunteer
Voices in the Dark will hold their volunteer orientation on Jan. 10 starting at 9:30 a.m. at the Cuyahoga County Public Library. More info can be found here: http://voicesinthedarkanimalrescue.weebly.com/events.html
