"If I had 10 extra hours a week to volunteer, you would find me at The Humane Society walking dogs! I would like to write books to educate children about our responsibilities to care for animals: the daily care required in having a pet (and only adopting a pet if you can make a long-term commitment), spaying and neutering, and abuse/neglect/dogfighting. I would then provide the books to local elementary schools."
