Cat care volunteer -- Saturday mornings, Turtle Bay

Save to Favorites

City Critters, Inc.

Volunteer

We are in need of cat-savvy people to help cats at our Petco adoption center at 991 Second Avenue between 52nd & 53rd Streets in Manhattan. It means cleaning cages and feeding the cats; you can always spend some fun time with them once the chores are done :-)

For the Saturday morning shift, folks need to arrive by 9am to begin their cat care shift.

Familiarity with felines and a sense of responsibility are required, as well as the ability to commit to about 1 hour a week for this shift for at least 6 months, i.e., including the holiday season. Some physical strength and agility are required by the role, including the ability to reach the back of the cages to clean and to safely maneuver around a cat while the cat stays in the cage when you are cleaning.

Because volunteers provide food & water to the cats and create a clean environment for them during their shift, reliability is a MUST. You must be 18 years of age or older.

Please read, date, sign, and then submit the Volunteer Application that will be attached as a PDF when you get the reply email message. A PDF of the volunteer flyer will also be attached. Thank you.
