Cat Enrichment

Cat Enrichment & Adoption volunteer: Cat whisperers, we need you! AAC can be a scary place for cats, with lots of noise and activity. Cat enrichment volunteers spend time giving extra love and attention to fearful felines, ensuring they are in clean and comfortable kennels.

Providing friendly customer service while assisting visitors in their search for their new family cat is also an integral part of the Cat Volunteer job.
