Intake & Foster Assistant

Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions

  • 6 people are interested
Volunteer2

Taking in cats is a part of what we do. In fact, it’s one of the most important things any animal rescue does! This is when we check the health and temperament of every animal that comes into our care and helps us decide if they’re a good fit for the shelter or need foster care to really shine. We are looking for a volunteer to aid with our intake process and foster home communications. Some responsibilities include:

  • Reviewing foster applications and home visits (if needed)
  • Training new fosters & gathering supplies, maintaining phone/email communications
  • Prepare & send weekly medical schedule: vaccines, dewormer, S/Ns, etc. due or overdue
  • Assisting with intake process: review forms, aid with initial exam and vaccinations
  • Scanning paperwork into database, set reminders for vaccine due dates, rabies tags, etc.

Volunteers for this position are needed from Sunday to Thursday, 12pm to 6pm - though we can always work with your schedule and would still love your time, even if it’s just a few hours! We will provide 100% of the training needed for this position. All we ask is volunteers are:

  • Fit to stand, squat, bend, twist, and lift
  • Comfortable handling cats that are scared in a new environment and may need special handling
  • Able to use chemical cleaning solutions (to clean and disinfect the facility)
  • Experienced in cat handling and behaviors - or open and interested to know more!
  • Familiar with basic technology, i.e. phones, computers, printers

At our facility, we often have a revolving door of kitties coming and going (which is a great thing!) and need extra hands to help us efficiently examine our cats, get them where they need to be, and help our foster families care for our animals.
