  1. We need dedicated volunteers to help maintain a sanitary environment inside our cat adoption center. This includes cleaning their kennels, feeding/replenishing food, and water. You will be trained on how to do this, and supplies will be provided

Volunteers will sometimes interact with potential adopters.

Volunteers for this position should be able to work independently, be self-motivated, possess self-initiative, be consistent, on time, and act professionally in a laid-back environment. Experience with cats is important. Volunteering in teams of two is permitted. There is cleaning involved and we all do it, even the Executive Director. This is the **most important** function of our daily operations, and vital for the health and well-being of our adoptable cats and kittens. Volunteers who are reliable and stay with us for at least 6 months will receive a strong letter of recommendation for their future endeavors.

If you are looking to be a leader amongst our all-volunteer nonprofit organization, and aren't afraid to do get your hands a little dirty, please reach out to us with a short note, and please don't forget to include a contact number. :-)

Volunteers should be committed to the aforementioned shifts for at least 6 months. We have morning, and evening shifts available.
