A little over a year ago, I learned of a volunteer opportunity with Pets on Wheels of Connecticut. After doing some research and speaking with Director, Elaine Papanic, I decided this was an opportunity I did not want to pass up. It was a chance to help individuals and/or families with obstacles and help save shelter pets at the same time.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably an animal lover. More than likely, you have had a moment in your life—a family member was ill, you had a fight with a friend or loved one, or you just felt stuck in a stressful situation—when you turned to your dogs or cats, buried your face in their fur, and experienced a moment of peace, real peace as you listened to them breathe, stroked their necks, and wondered what the world looked like through their eyes. That moment gave you the break you needed from life, as well as strength to face it again the next day.
Imagine the difference a pet would make in your life.
Pets on Wheels of Connecticut is entirely volunteer-run. If you would like to volunteer with, or donate to, this wonderful organization, visit petsonwheelsct.org to learn more.

Being a volunteer with Pets on Wheels of CT has been a most rewarding experience for me. One of the things I like most is the family atmosphere of the organization and how everyone’s contributions, no matter how small, are met with gratitude and appreciation. If you live in the area and are looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of both humans and shelter pets, please contact Pets on Wheels of CT and find out how you can help.
