How do volunteer jobs feel about no previous experience?
I'm 15 and would like to volunteer at my local animal shelter to get closer to animals and for something to put on future resumes. I don't recall volunteering for anything that's exactly "official", with a form and all, so I don't really have much to write when the application asks what I've done to volunteer. The only pet I've had is a turtle, so I've never taken care of mammals before. Can it be a learning experience or would they probably not want me?

Since they're not paying you for it, I don't think that previous experience is really that big of an issue... More

The majority of people who volunteer at these places have no previous experience when they first start out. If animal shelters were picky about this kind of thing they would have no volunteer workers at all.
