The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We have nine of our rescued cats living in the cat room at the Monrovia PetSmart and we need volunteers who can spend a few hours of time each week with them. We have a schedule and assigned shifts. Currently we need of people who can do the morning shift, which begins at 9 am. We have Tuesdays available now. We also have a few late afternoon shifts opening up, one being Saturday.
Volunteers clean the kennels and and feed the kitties. They let the cats out of the kennels to play and socialize. We ask that volunteers be interested in helping long-term and request that you not apply for this opportunity for use in school projects, including college level, or community credit. This is a great opportunity for people who love cats and who can spend a few hours each week with our rescues. We have a diverse group of felines ranging in age from 4 to 10. They all have a unique history and personality, just like us. An appreciation of this will enhance your experience!
When you inquire, we will try to get in touch with you within a week or two, by phone or email. Be patient; we greatly appreciate all offers of help! Please do not inquire about this opportunity unless you are ready to commit. We are an all volunteer run organization and we ask for the courtesy of only applying if you are able and ready to respond.
