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. ┬áHe says his kids have done several things over the years to benefit animal shelters.

Thank you, Dr. Palmer-Toy and family!
