The Philadelphia Community Cats Project needs volunteers!
Interested in helping community cats (aka free-roaming, stray or feral cats) in your area? A partnership between Best Friends Animal Society and PetSmart Charities(tm), the Philadelphia Community Cats Project humanely and effectively reduces the number of cats living on our streets.
You can put your talents to work in the following ways:
Cat care and housekeeping at Animal Care & Control Team of Philadelphia
Calling all clean freaks. This position involves maintaining and cleaning the new community cat room, as well as cleaning, feeding and caring for friendly and feral cats in traps. We’d also like your help restocking the community cat rooms with cat food, litter boxes, newspaper, water, trap covers and towels, as well as washing and drying trap covers. This position runs seven days a week.
Community cat trapper and transporter
Be a super sleuth. We need people to trap community cats in specific areas with Best Friends staff, and to accompany staff in a project van to and from clinics, holding areas and animal shelters, and back to the trap location. You can also work independently.
Data entry assistant
If attention to detail is your strong suit, we’d welcome your assistance with entering program data into a spreadsheet. This position can be remote once you get trained.
