This will not be updating for the near future

Due to changing jobs and now working for an animal shelter to coordinate adoptions outreach there, I no longer feel that it is ethical for me to keep up this blog.  I will keep it up for awhile because I may return to it in the future after more thought and after I become more comfortable with the ethical interplay between being a private blogger and an employee of a public shelter.

Thank you for reading.  I do miss writing here.

    Congrats on the new job!

    I understand that you don't want to continue the blog further, but… can I ask a question? I'm wondering if I should be using some of my unemployed hours by volunteering at the local shelter. However, I don't want to face rejection if I explain that I'm not going to be available 24/7 if/when I do get a job.
    Do they take volunteers on a short-term basis? I understand that a shelter needs long-term support — I could promise a long-term hour or two a week, but currently I don't know if I'll get a job or what my schedule might be.
    I can promise 24/7 right now, and a limited support in the future, would this be enough for a shelter? I don't want them to laugh in my face and tell me to go elsewhere. (I get enough rejection in the job hunt, thankyouverymuch.)
