Read about KittyKind at KittyKind is all-volunteer cat rescue and cat adoption group located in the Petco store on 17th Street and Broadway, in space that the Petco Corporation donates. KittyKind relies upon donations for all other expenses. It relies upon volunteers to care for the rescued cats.

A Health-Maintenance volunteer helps to give nutritional supplements, eye cream, and veterinarian-prescribed medication to cats awaiting adoption at the KittyKind adoption center.

Training and training materials will be given. The volunteer shift would be for a couple of hours, one day a week, throughout the year. After training, the day and the time are up to you.

Preference is for a volunteer who has experience working with animals or who is a pre-vet, or a vet-tech student. However, all help is welcome. For Saturday or Sunday help, please be an "early bird," able to start about 8 or 9, before the adoption center gets crowded. Must be over age 18. Active seniors very welcome! References preferred.
