Volunteer Work for 9yr old daughter [Adliswil]

Hi All!
I am looking for some type of outreach/volunteer program or work that my 9yr old daughter could participate in either alone or with us as a family. She really flourishes in helping and dedicating her time to others (specifically animals and senior citizens). She speaks fluent Swiss German/german and English. If anyone has an idea or knows of any connections I could make, I would appreciate it! We are in the Zurich/Adliswil area.

Re: Volunteer Work for 9yr old daughter [Adliswil]

You could contact one of the Tierheim and ask about 'Gassigehen', walking the shelter dogs.

However, at 9 years old your daughter is likely too young to volunteer with most animal shelters by herself. You, or another responsible adult, would have to walk the dogs with her, you would be the person in charge (that often means holding the lead). Would you be able to do that?

But it must be stressed: Each shelter has it's own policies, and from what I have seen these do vary widely. So when you find a shelter in need of volunteer help, ask for specifics.





Good on your daughter for wanting to get involved.
