For some, one the keys to happiness is a little (or big) furry companion. And they live in the cruel, cruel world of an apartment building that doesn’t allow four-legged companionship.

Often, these people are easily spotted. They’re the ones who run up to random people on the streets asking to pet their dog, or they spend time in pet stores, fawning over the newborn pups and then grimacing at their $2k price tag.

But there’s another side to these non-pet-owning animal lovers. They may just not want the day-to-day responsibility. A dog is like a child. It needs to be fed, taken out multiple times a day and given tons of attention.

Still, having a pet for a couple of hours a week sure is a lovely idea. And it’s not too far-fetched. You can volunteer. It’s as simple as that. Do good for the community, get some good karmic energy and play with dogs and cats all day.

Okay, well, that’s oversimplifying the position; it’s not all fun and games. It is serious work in need of dedicated individuals.
