At Saving One Life Animal Rescue and Sanctuary, we are in need of three adoption center lead at two of our Tempe locations. Our adoption centers are located inside PetSmart (Elliot and Priest as well as McClintock and Guadalupe). have a variety of volunteer opportunities:
We ask that leads volunteer once per week. The majority of your time you will focus your time on the following tasks that all adoption center volunteers complete during their shift ideally:
light cleaning of each kennel
refreshing the food and water in each kennel
cleaning the litter boxes
spending time playing and petting the kitties there
On occasion, a potential adopter may come by to answer questions or meet an animal. Anything you cannot answer can be directed towards the rescue director.
All adoptions are handled by the director therefore a volunteer never has to tell a potential adopter no.
In addition, as a center lead, you would:
Monitor supplies and put in request as needed
Ensure microchip is functioning and charged
Ensure all documentation and kennel cards are located in appropriate location. Notify leadership if anything is missing.
Assist in Laundry (approximately a load a week, if that).
Assist with donations (typically wet or dry food by kind shopper)
Communicate directly with Director of Volunteer Coordination and Director of Center Operations as needed.
Optional: Send weekly emails (one to two paragraphs) to center volunteers with updates (e.g. Who got adopted. Any new cats checked in? New beds?)
Answer questions that new volunteers may have about your particular center
Training and support are provided for all volunteers. Leads are communicated with weekly.
