Connections With Furry Friends

Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.

 –George Eliot


Here at Collegiate Coaching Services, not only do we believe in strong community connections with the people around us, but we also see the value that can come in connections with furry friends! Working with animals teaches responsibility, the importance of hard work and dedication, and can also provide companionship.

Boulder and the surrounding areas offer many great opportunities to get involved in working with animals. The Humane Society of Boulder Valley is a great place to volunteer and offers opportunities to work with cats and dogs. There are also multiple opportunities in which to get involved in working with horses, like Medicine Horse or Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center. If you’re looking for something a little more alternative, you can volunteer to work with raccoons, birds, squirrels, and more at the Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. And these are just a few examples! We help our clients get involved in programs such as these because we see the therapeutic value in working with animals, as well as putting our time to good use helping the community through volunteering.
