Likewise, people ask, can 10 year olds volunteer at an animal shelter?
Volunteer at your local animal shelter. If you find a shelter that will let you volunteer, you can walk dogs, clean up after the animals, refill water bowls, and give out toys and treats. Even just being there to pet cats and scratch dogs behind the ears will help them feel less lonely.
