Please fill out the following volunteer application so we know how to contact you, what you're interested in and you are properly registered: https://tailsct.z2systems.com/projectList.jsp
Here's a little history....
In March 2017, TAILS moved into the 4-unit, cat adoption space at the Petco-Westport located at 1850 Post Road East(next to Michaels & Home Goods). Each day we go visit our furry charges and clean their litter, feed them, play with them and give them some general loving! We have three daily shifts to help make sure the kitties have lots of opportunity to be played with - and we need help! We are hoping for 60-90 minutes (or more!) of your time during one of these daily shifts: 9-2pm, 2-5pm, 5-9pm M-Sat, 9-2 or 2-6 Sunday. Note: you don't have to go the entire shift - it's 90 or so minutes during that shift. Whether you can commit to one night a week or once every other week (or once/month?) - that would be great! It's easy and you really are making a difference!
Cat caretaking must be done during the store's hours (9am-9pm, M-S, 10-6 on Sun); we ask that you arrive at least one hour before the store closes if you are on the last TAILS shift (times noted in the paragraph above) of the day. Mandatory requirments: 1) fill out volunteer form (link below), 2) Volunteer orientation (30 minute orientation at store; you will be contacted once you sign up). All supplies are provided. To sign up for one of our orientations, fill out the vol form and sing up here:
