Join our Shelter Care Team!

We are currently looking for new volunteers to join our active team of Shelter Care Volunteers.

This essential volunteer position provides care, love, exercise and wellness to homeless cats that temporarily reside at our shelters. We are looking for volunteers that have an eye for detail, are calm and responsible, and commit to a regular weekly 2 hour shift

You must be 19+ to serve in this position. 

Responsibilities

  • Provide care by feeding, cleaning, and assessing our in-care cats and kittens
  • Adhere to cleaning and disinfecting protocols to maintain the highest standard for our guests.

QUALIFICATIONS
This role requires key-holder access to the shelter and thus all applicants must be older than 19-years of age. 
 
Because there is heavy lifting, standing on step stools, reaching, and moving objects to clean, this role is well-suited to folks who can safely perform these activities. We are dealing with animals that are best considered "unpredictable" due to the stress of being in a shelter environment. 
 
 

 

Qualifications Required

  • Age range Must be at least 16-18 years of age
  • Information Session (or Volunteer Orientation) Must be at least Completed
  • Interview Must be Completed
