Every morning, Volunteers conduct playtime with the cats and kittens Kittyland currently has at PetSmart Palm Springs and also feed the cats and kittens and clean their cages. Playtime is, as it suggests, alot of fun. Many of our rescues have not had humans love them and spend time playing with their toys and petting them. We do not bring feral cats into this location but many are shy or in need of love. Every cat or kitten Kittyland has at PetSmart is spayed or neutered and has been vaccinated. These cats are healthy and ready for adoption. These Volunteers do not do Adoption Counseling. Volunteers do need to be "cat people" and have some experience with cats.
At this time, we can only have adult volunteers. We have 15 such volunteers now and specifically will have an opening in May because one of our valued teams will be going to Portland for the summer. We have discovered that a Volunteer team of two works very well. The feeding and cleaning of litter boxes and cages can then be coordinated with playtime and managed between the two people.
Kittyland cares very much for and appreciates its volunteers. We will give you references so you can visit with other volunteers and observe them at PetSmart. As a volunteer, you will be valued and praised. You will receive specific answers to your questions and someone you can always call with questions or problems. You receive an emailed photo and an announcement of every adopted cat or kitten. We provide T Shirts, bumper stickers and a couple of parties each year!
