Can you help volunteer at an animal rescue shelter if you are 12 years old?

Many shelters are looking for volunteers to work from all ages. But don't expect to get paid. Just give them a call and see if there's anything you can do. It may not be the most glamorous job in the world like: cleaning cages, walking animals,washing and grooming, but they will appreciate any help they can get, and it will look good on a resume.
