Want to become well while doing good? Like petting but afraid of commitment? The Los Angeles County Animal Shelters need volunteers, including dog-walkers! Shelters near Baldwin Park, Downey, and South Bay Medical Centers particularly need help. See the website for more information.
This is a great combined wellness and volunteer activity contributed by SCPMG’s Darryl Palmer-Toy, MD, PhD, Assistant Medical Director of Laboratory Services, who says his family recently adopted a kitten from the Baldwin Park shelter and how he learned of the dire need for volunteers. He says his kids have done several things over the years to benefit animal shelters.
Thank you, Dr. Palmer-Toy and family!
