This is an opportunity to help stray and abandoned cats and kittens get into a healthy environment and prepare them for a new life in a forever home.
Clean and Feed Volunteers are needed at the Cat Adoption Center for 2 to 3 hour shifts, morning and evening. Duties include feeding the cats, maintaining their cat condos, scooping litter boxes, washing dishes, laundry, sweeping and cleaning floors, and general cleaning of the adoption center. The morning teams are structured with a team leader and 5 volunteers to accomplish a clean and healthy environment for our resident cats and volunteers. The evening Clean and Feed is a lighter duty with tidying the condo while feeding the cats.
There is an immediate need for all AM shifts. There is a set schedule so volunteers are always on the same shift.
If you are not available for every shift on a particular day we can arrange alternate weeks.
Volunteers must have their own health insurance.
We do NOT accept: - court ordered community service - school project hours - people under 18, even if accompanied by an adult - less than a six month commitment
The Protectors of Animals (P.O.A.) is a 501c3 non-profit all volunteer, all donation organization whose mission is to rescue stray, abused, abandoned and impounded cats and dogs. P.O.A. promotes spay/neuter prior to adoption preventing over population and the unnecessary euthansia of our companion cats and dogs. Our mission statement " To improve the lives of dogs and cats in the communities we serve."
P.O.A. was founded in 1975 and is run mainly by volunteers as we have one employee that oversees the medical care of the cats at the adoption center. We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals into loving homes, promote animal spaying/neutering, combat cruelty to animals and educate the public on animal care and welfare.
