I struggled so much with this. It's just the short answer, I have no clue why I had so much trouble, but here it is I suppose. It's not very good, but that's why I'm here!

Ever since 9th grade, I have been volunteering with the Danville Area Humane Society. With other volunteers, I helped take care of the animals that were brought there by feeding and cleaning them. Although each visit is more or less the same, I will never forget my first day there. Upon arrival, I was instructed to give treats to each of the dogs. I noticed that there seemed to be a rather small amount of treats, but I assumed that there was a larger storage elsewhere. After distributing the treats, I decided to do the same thing for the cats. As it turned out, there were no cat treats, nor was there a hidden reservoir of dog treats. The shelter was, and still is, undersupplied given the huge quantities of stray animals. As a result of that day, I have been dedicated to ensuring that all animals receive proper care.
