Our volunteers generally spend 1 hour in the Center for their shift. We ask for a 3-month commitment.
Keep the cat rooms clean and neat.
Scoop litter boxes.
Replace food and water if necessary.
Brush hair out of the cat play structures, replace cat beds and blankets, sweep, mop, and maintain the overall cleanliness of the Center.
Play and cuddle with the kitties.
Occasionally perform a more thorough cleaning of the cat rooms before new cats come in.

Due to the small size of the Adoption Center, this role is not well-suited for a group. Please also note you have to be 14 years or older and anyone under 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult every time they are in the Center. These age requirements are PetSmart's rules and no exceptions can be made.
