Volunteers work to ensure the cleanliness of the cages, while socializing the cats and kittens. We have up to seven residents in our Cat Room at a time. Specific duties include: socializing and comforting the cats; monitoring behavior and medical needs on daily log; maintaining cleanliness cages and the room; stocking supplies; assisting with dishes; scrubbing litter pans; sweeping and mopping; providing fresh water; and passing out toys.
Direct animal handling required. Please fill out a Volunteer application at www.ruffhaven.org/volunteer. Thank you!
Our mission is to provide a temporary safe haven for companion animals in order to keep pets and their people together in times of crisis, increase pet retention, and decrease the number of animals entering the shelter system.
Our organization provides temporary emergency fostering services for people experiencing a crisis. We board pets at both a dog boarding facility (yes, even cats!), as well as individual foster homes. As of June 2020 we have reunified over 30 families with their beloved furry family members. We also hosted Utah's first completely free drive-thru vaccination clinic. Our main focus is pet retention and keeping people with their pets.
We'll work with your schedule.
