Our Cats need YOU right meow!
47 people are interested
All the Same, Wild and Tame currently needs volunteers to assist with taking care of our adoptable cats at PETCO. Petco stores offers space and some supplies at no charge and our partnership gets homeless cats out of the shelters and into homes. They only require that we find volunteers to maintain the habitat and the cats' wellbeing. Right now Mondays through Thursdays and Saturday, Morning or Afternoon is available - your preference!
Duties include the thorough cleaning of the kennel, litter boxes, and food and water bowls, and refilling the food and water bowls for the day. A list of specific duties can be provided so you know what is expected. You should be able to stand for at least 1 hour and be comfortable bending, squatting and stretching during your shift. Our volunteer coordinator will communicate with you via text so having a cell phone with texting ability is a must.
Once the cleaning is done, the fun begins! Use this time to pet or play with each cat to keep them happy. Be attentive and learn what each cat is comfortable with: some will be shy and want only a little bit of attention at a time while another will want to play with every toy we have. Try brushing a kitty too! This is called socializing and will make the kitties more adoptable.
These positions are long term commitments. Make sure that you will be available to help on your scheduled day for a minimum of six months.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
