We need help with various office work on Tuesday, Wednesday, and/or Thursday afternoons between 1-4 pm. The work is at the main intake foster home. Catnip Casa Cat Refuge is entirely foster-home-based. The intake home is also the office and the permanent residence for our most senior and special needs cats.
Our insurance requires all volunteers to be over 18. Because it is a private home, the foster home asks that volunteers be fully vaccinated and willing to wear a mask in the house. The health of our caregivers is extremely important.
We use PCs and Microsoft Office, and there are a variety of duties to keep you busy. Animal medical files need updates in Shelter Manager. A newsletter is waiting to be written, and a short blog post to write, or new subscribers to be added. If you know WordPress, you may be able to help with website maintenance and updates too. We also have fundraising projects and grants that need letters and research.
Our workload is not heavy, but it is consistent. We have times when we have a lot of work due to events like Amplify Austin. There are also opportunities to do fun things like taking photos of kitties for our social media volunteer to use and even post your own posts. We welcome creative ideas if you like making up cute captions and creating posts in Canva.
In addition, there are things like medication inventories and rx reorders that need to be managed, along with maintaining our wishlists for Amazon and Chewy.
If you like pets, you are welcome to help with other shelter responsibilities when the office work is caught up. This is a very small organization. We like to teach and have fun here too.
We can only accommodate one person at a time. Our desk space and equipment are limited. We'd like to have one person make a regular commitment for several months and get to know the animals, software programs, and duties. The work hours are from 1-4 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and/or Thursday. We need someone on all three days, but we will try it with only two days for an experienced person.
Our ideal volunteer is someone with a mature, responsible attitude who will be reliable and dependable, even though this is a volunteer job. You need to have clerical and administrative experience with MS Office programs and good computer skills for email, spreadsheets, letters, and newsletters.

Catnip Casa Cat Refuge provides narrowly focused services for senior and special needs cats that require extensive rehab or lifelong pawspice care due to age, disease, or disabilities, that does not allow them to remain in their home or community. Of course, we occasionally end up with animals that need adoption too, when an animal is well enough to find a forever family.
We also educate owners, caregivers, professionals, and the public, about caring for pets with challenges caused by age, disease, disabilities, or terminal illness. We strive to develop a network of persons, services, foster homes, and resources that benefit the community.
Catnip Casa mentors trappers and actively supports TNR (trap/neuter/release) for community cats.
