Our Cat Team volunteers help provide love, enrichment, socialization and attention to our shelter cats - from kittens to seniors. Training will include how to read cat body language and understand behavior. Activities include brushing, petting and playing with the cats.

Entry level cat volunteers have flexible opportunities for working with the cats. Those interested in a stronger commitment can receive additional training and opportunities, such as Kitten Team (weighing and socializing the small kittens), Cat Lead/Volunteer Trainer and partnering with our Medical Team for other advanced duties. For cat lovers who also have great customer service skills and enjoy working with the public, we have assignments like Cat Adoption Counselors, Class Trainers and Adoption Event Handlers.

Mission Statement

Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a community responsible for pet stewardship and humane treatment of animals.

Description

On November 1, 2012 the City of Palm Springs and Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter entered into an agreement allowing Friends to assume operation of the shelter. This partnership paves the way to a new model for caring for animals in need in our community, providing a safe haven for both highly adoptable animals as well as those who require behavioral training or medical treatment before they can be adopted.

The Palm Springs Animal Shelter is a municipal shelter serving the city of Palm Springs, not a private rescue. Therefore, we cannot close our doors when we are full. As an "open admission" shelter that does not euthanize for space or length of stay, we are continuously challenged to place our animals in homes as quick as possible.
