I love dogs. And I was wondering, do you think I'd get paid for going to my animal shelter & taking the dogs out of their cage & play with them for awhile? Like in the big play pen area, I guess you could call it, lol. Even if I didnt get paid, that'd be totally fine with me.
in the UK, the dog trust lets people take dogs out for walks and stuff. I don't think you will get paid for it, especially since most shelters are run by charitys...it supposed to be a 'because you love it thing'
maybe if you went into private 'dog sitting' but you would need to organise this as a business and be fully commited to it, in addition I think the competition is fierce and the work is considered a luxury thing.
contact your local shlters, theres only one way to find out (though I wouldn't mention the getting paid bit first, or at all actually until you have started!) can you imagine the applications list if this was the job;
person wanted for charity dog shleter. job invloves, playing with dogs and puppys, waling them, generally having fun, meals included. pay competative!
I don't think they have any trouble lol!
No you wouldnt get paid, the people who do that stuff are volunteers... but you could dog sit for other people and get paid
