At Homeward Bound, our weekend Petco adoption events are a time of lots of joy - and lots of craziness! In the span of just a few hours over one or two days, during our busy season, we see literally dozens of cats and kittens go home to their forever families. That’s a lot of adoptions! These events call for level-headed, multi-tasking, people-savvy superstars to keep adopters on the right track, help out with what our Petco event lead needs, and of course, keep our kitties comfortable while they wait. We are looking for a handful of volunteers to help out with these weekend fun days! Volunteers are needed to:
Arrive before or after the event to set-up and/or breakdown tables, kennels, seating, etc.
Aid with checking in adopters as they arrive for their appointments, according to event protocol and priority
Help with filling out paperwork, organizing adoption folders (with needed handouts, vaccine records, etc.), assisting with adoption counseling as needed
Keeping our patient cats company; ensure they have blankets, water, food, etc. to stay comfy while they eye their future family
These weekend events typically run from 10:30am - 4:30pm (or earlier, if all our kitties are adopted before then!) on Saturday and Sunday (or just Saturday if, again, all our cats are adopted). Volunteers are not expected to work the entire event and we’ll gladly take any time you can spare before, during, or after! All we ask is volunteers are:
Fit to stand, squat, bend, twist, and lift approx. 50 lbs (to set-up/breakdown)
Comfortable in forward-facing, person-to-person interactions; there are lots of people here!
Able to work in a fast-paced, high-stress, multi-tasking environment
Our weekend events are a crazy time - but fulfilling. Every weekend you'll make happy families for humans and felines! Homeward Bound puts hundreds of cats with their people each year at these events, and we’d love for you to join us.

10:00 AM to 04:00 PM
Weekends only (volunteers aren't required to do both days) - we're flexible on hours!

Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions provides a modern, free-roaming adoption center to minimize the stress experienced by homeless cats and optimize the opportunity for adoption. When owners are no longer able to care for their pets, we offer an alternative to taking them to a shelter or leaving them on the street.
Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2007.
We'll work with your schedule.
