Volunteers are needed to care for cats awaiting adoption in the Petsmart adoption center. These volunteers clean cages, change bedding, refresh water and food, scoop litter boxes, take out trash, sweep and mop the floor, brush, pet and give lots of love to the cats. Cats are typically let out of their cage for exercise while the cage is being cleaned, The volunteer should be comfortable with retrieving the cat and placing it back in the cage. There are 8-10 cages in the adoption center.
The volunteer must be a mature, responsible adult who is able to work independently and is comfortable handling cats. Good judgement is needed as some cats are fearful or stressed when they come into the adoption center.
We are in need of one volunteer for every Monday and another for every Thursday, to arrive between 2 pm and 6 pm.
This job will require 1-2 hours of your time, the same day every week. Training will be provided on your first day; then you will work alone. This is an ongoing position with no definite end date - stay with us as long as you like.
All HHAS volunteers are part of the team and are welcome to attend volunteer meetings and events.
Happy Home Animal Sanctuary's adoption center is inside Petsmart, 9869 S Eastern Av, in the Target shopping center.
