TAILS Petco Adoption Units


Love cats? Want to help us play and socialize our kitties (and clean their litter boxes...) before they go to their forever homes? This is your opportunity!!

We ask everyone to please fill out the following volunteer application so we know how to contact you, what you're interested in and you are properly registered: https://tailsct.z2systems.com/projectList.jsp

Here's a little history....
In November 2014, TAILS took over managing the 4-unit, cat adoption space at the Petco-Norwalk location at 650 Main Ave, Norwalk (next to WalMart and Staples). Each evening we need to go visit our furry charges and clean their litter, feed them, play with them and give them some general loving! Ideally our volunteers also go during the day whenever they can to socialize as well - but the locked-in times we need are feeding/cleaning/playing in the early evening timeframe. Whether you can commit to one night a week or once every other week (or once/month?) - that would be great! It's easy and you really are making a difference!

Cat caretaking must be done during the store's hours (basically 9am-9pm, M-S, 10-6 on Sun) and around what is considered "normal" feeding times. Training will be given and a volunteer application must be filled out, too. Please email your interest and we can work on a mutually convenient time to get together at Petco. All supplies are provided. For our calendar of orientations and to sign up - check here.

PLEASE PRE-FILL OUT OUR VOLUNTEER FORM HERE: https//tailsct.z2systems.com/projectlist.jsp

We welcome responsible children as volunteers if accompanied by an adult and teens, based on successful completion of a probation period (and parental signature), can volunteer solo/pairs.

Thank you!
