AARCS Safe Haven is designed as a temporary, emergency and quarantine shelter. As we are primarily foster home based, there are no adoptable animals at AARCS Safe Haven. For those cats who are staying at Safe Haven, our Cat Caregivers are essential! Caregivers are responsible for feeding, cleaning cages, administering any basic medications, socializing, and other shelter duties related to the cats (such as laundry and dishes).
Cat Caregiver shifts are 9 am to 11 am, and 6 pm to 8 pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Shift lengths may vary depending on how many cats are in house, and the number of caregivers signed up. We do ask for a minimum of 2 shifts per month, from each caregiver.
As we care for all types of cats - young, old, behavioural, medical etc - all potential caregivers should have some cat experience and a willingness to learn!
