Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Love cats? Always wanted to help those kitties looking for their forever homes in a positive, friendly way? 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
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, 9-7pm on Sun) and around what is considered "normal" feeding times. An orientation and filling out our volunteer application are mandatory. Please click on the link in this listing to fill out the volunteer application and we will email you back regarding orientations scheduled. All supplies are provided. For our calendar of orientations and to sign up - https://tailsct.z2systems.com/np/clients/tailsct/publicaccess/eventCalendarBig.jsp
