Whether young people like cats or canaries, pugs or pigs, horses or seahorses, they can look for an internship or volunteer position where they can be around those animals. Teens discover internship opportunities that are win-win propositions and can be gateways to jobs and careers. Many schools have begun to incorporate community service projects into their curriculum, requiring students to participate in a specified number of service hours. Readers explore the ways to find and land opportunities, whether using local organizations and businesses, websites, school counselors, groups and clubs, or approaching colleges that offer internships for animal lovers. Readers gain practical information about working with typical animals as well as exotic creatures, wild animals, birds, and sea animals, such as those found in zoos, aquariums, nature centers, and wildlife sanctuaries and preserves. Other opportunities described include those in animal-assisted therapy, hospitals, clinics, shelters, kennels and catteries, doggie daycares, ranches, stables, camps, and pet grooming businesses.
