Kitties need your love & caring until they are adopted by their new family


King County's animal shelter/ RASKC is seeking volunteers for a weekly Friday morning shift to cuddle and care for kitties from the shelter who temporarily reside at Covington Petco, as they wait to be adopted.

You would give the cat fresh food & water. Clean the kennel, then give loving attention to the animal.

As a RASKC ambassador, you also engage with Petco customers who are interested in cat care or the cat-adoption process. You also maintain the best possible professional relationships with the Petco staff.

RASKC asks all volunteers to make an initial commitment of a weekly shift for six months or alternate weeks for one year (time off okay for vacations, illness, etc.) -- unless you're a "summer-only" volunteer. The commitment for the summer is six shifts, plus trainng.

Next steps:

1. Submit an initial application at Step 1,

2. Register and attend a new volunteer orientation session

Details at Step 2,
