What jobs help people or animals that dont require a lot of extra eduction?

I am looking for a career field and job where I can help people or animals. I love the thought of doing something that matters, like helping children. I dont have the money to go thru more college. I have an associates in sociology and an associates in administrative assisting. Any ideas for jobs? I need a paycheck though also, so volunteering is out. The pay needs to be decent though. I just feel like i need a change sometimes. I'm a secretary now and most of my jobs have been a secretary, receptionist, file clerk. I love what I do, but I feel I need to start helping .. like I make a difference. I would appreciate the advice. Thanks. :)
