Jeff Honig, a retired deputy, loves every single minute of this job. He actually owns four cats, but really adores the time spent with these dogs.
When shelter dogs leave the operating room at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, where they have been spayed or neutered, the retired Hillsborough County deputy waist them to comfort and cuddle them in a recovery pen during a scary time.
Honig says that it is actually soothing to him and he enjoys the amazing experience. He volunteers at the Tampa shelter ten hours a week.
His help is more than welcome in the shelter, as sometimes, they cannot find enough people willing to snuggle their dogs. Numerous students want to help, bit when school is not in session, and they have more free time.
In most cases, the dogs that need cuddles the most are the dogs that are fresh out of surgery. Now, more than ever, the shelter needs volunteers to help.
