Volunteer Foster Assistant This volunteer will be responsible for troubleshooting foster concerns and inquiries. They may need to schedule checkups with the Foster Coordinator. They would be responding to feline health-related questions and general inquiries. Foster experience helpful, veterinary experience/medical experience in a clinic or shelter setting strongly preferred. They must be able to learn quickly and communicate well with the Foster Coordinator. They should be able to answer questions about the type of care certain kittens need including bottle babies, sick kittens, feral moms with kittens, and transitional kittens based on the protocol material provided by Town Cats. This needs a calm, organized, and informative person who can provide excellent customer service and responsiveness. They will need to access Google Docs and Google Calendar (experienced is helpful but can train) and will need to learn to use Shelterluv (training provided). Time commitment and schedule is on an on-call basis.
Town Cats is a non-profit volunteer-based no-kill cat and kitten adoption center/shelter and feral cat advocacy organization dedicated to enriching the lives of homeless cats and kittens in the south Santa Clara county through an aggressive rescue and adoption program, TNR (trap, neuter, return), and public education.
Town Cats works to alleviate the suffering of stray, abandoned, unwanted, and feral cats in Santa Clara County. We sponsor innovative programs to help cats in traditional shelters in our county, as well as community cats who live outdoors. We educate the public about the cat overpopulation problem, and provide people with the tools to become part of the solution. Town Cats supports individuals who want to help through aggressive spay/neuter and cat care programs, and by providing vet care and cat food to low income cat guardians, fosters, or owners. We also find permanent, safe, and loving homes for the homeless house cats and kittens in our care.
