Position Summary : The Feline Coordinator abides by and actively supports the vision, mission and values of Safe Place. The Feline Coordinator acts in the best interests of the felines in the program, and those that may come into the program.

The Feline Coordinator acts on potential intake information provided by the Intake Coordinator. The Feline Coordinator explains to the potential surrenderer how our program works, to set the process in motion for a successful conclusion. The Feline Coordinator works with the foster volunteers to create a scenario where both pet and foster are a good fit. The Feline Coordinator stays in contact with the foster volunteers to be aware of potential problems/struggles, health concerns, financial issues, and/or updates on a pet and foster.

Tasks Include:

  • Responding to potential surrender and adoption leads from the Initial Contact Coordinator

  • Staying in contact with our current fosters (checking in, confirming pet well being, obtaining new updates and pictures of pets, preventing foster burn-out, being aware of vacations and foster coverage needed)
  • Reporting volunteer hours every month
  • Using donated supplies, when possible, rather than purchasing new
