About

We show adoptable cats at various pet stores located throughout San Jose and Morgan Hill. Volunteers are needed to help our cats thrive in what is typically a stressful environment because happy and healthy cats are more likely to be adopted into loving homes.

As a clean/care volunteer, you will clean cages and feed cats at one of our adoption centers. Shifts usually take around 1.5 to 2 hours and include cleaning litter boxes, feeding cats, wiping out cages with cleaner, changing bedding, and giving cats free time outside their cages. Morning shifts start no later than 10:00am and evening shifts no earlier than 6:00pm. (Sunday evenings can start at 5:00pm.)

Volunteers must be comfortable handling cats, and on occasion, will have to administer oral or eye medication. Volunteers must also be able to climb step stools and crouch for extended periods of time.

This is an on-going volunteer opportunity for those who can commit to at least one shift a week for several months. Minimum age requirement is 18 years of age.
