Volunteers are the lifeblood of Kitten & Puppy Division. Without your help we could not help the cats and dogs in our community that need us. Volunteers will be paid back with kitty kudos, purrs and head butts. Can you devote a few hours a week to help us help them?
Volunteers perform a variety of tasks to help ensure that the adoption center is tidy and the cats are comfortable. Tasks include inspecting cages for any needed cleaning; changing bedding and litter as needed and feeding the cats; running a load or two of laundry and washing food dishes.
During our regular adoption hours, you would greet visitors, accept adoption applications, discuss cat care, aid in the selection of the appropriate pet and complete the adoption process. You may also do laundry, keep cages and common areas clean, and answer phone calls.
Thrift shop team members assist with accepting and sorting donations, pricing donated items, as well as organizing and general cleaning of the shop.
As a volunteer, you may respond to requests for trapping feral or free-roaming cats or assist a more experienced TNR volunteer doing the same. Duties may include counseling the public, trap pickup & delivery, assessing trap sites, setting traps and arranging for monitoring, retrieving trapped cats, and cleaning traps.
Serve as shelter ambassadors and help spread the word about the mission of Kitten & Puppy Division. Volunteers participating in special events, both on-site and off-site, help promote the adoption of shelter animals and the services and resources we offer. Through education and a positive attitude, the Event and Fundraising Team help build lasting relationships with the community we serve.
Do you have room in your home to foster abandoned kittens, puppies and/or expectant moms? We are always in need of volunteers who are willing to open up their homes to cats and dogs in need until they are ready to come in to the adoption center. .
