Where else can cleaning help save a life? Please be over 18 years old, with no animal allergies, available on a weekday afternoon (we work with school schedules), able to lift and bend for cleaning, no special skill or knowledge is
Without cleaning and good care, the senior and special needs cats don't stay healthy. Without your help, we have less time to find foster homes and raise funds to help more cats and dogs. The schedule is flexible and no minimum number of days per week is required. We ask for a 2 hour block of time to get work done.
You must be available to work weekday afternoons, Monday or Tuesday and Thursday or Friday preferred, for at least two hours at a time between 12 and 4 pm. We are located in NE Austin, near Braker and I-35.
We need help with maintenance and cleaning of the indoor cat rooms. This is real cleaning and getting your hands dirty. Some of the duties needed are washing very large litter pans, scooping litter, cleaning cat trees (lots of fur to remove), vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, washing kitty dishes and fountains. Not all of it is required every time.
Some work requires lifting 20-30 pounds of litter or scooping smaller amounts into a pail and using a step stool to reach shelves, or working in small areas. There is substantial bending, reaching, and kneeling involved. The outdoor areas are not air conditioned or heated. Most work is indoors.
Please, be good at following instructions and willing to do whatever is required. We offer a brief orientation session the first day and plenty of help to get to know the job. Our rescue is foster home based. The work is at the intake foster home where there are three cat rooms. We do not have room for groups, but we will consider two people who want to volunteer together and work well as a team.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
