When you volunteer as a Kitty Angel or TLC volunteer, you will spend your time caring for our cats and kittens during their stay at PetSmart Overland Park's (115th & Metcalf) Kitty Hotel as they wait for their forever home.
There are 2 shifts daily for our volunteers to fill, with opportunities to help with auxiliary work, such as laundry and organization.
TLC volunteers are responsible for helping socialize the kitties by playing with them outside of their kennel, petting them, brushing them, general pampering and morning feeding if requested by their foster parent. The TLC shifts are the AM shifts.
Pet Angel volunteers during the PM shift primarily clean and tidy the cat condos, change their litter in their litter boxes, freshen their dry food and water, give canned food, and communicate any needs to respective foster parents.
Pet Angel and TLC volunteers are critical members of Heart of America Humane Society, and can have significant impact on kitties adjusting to a new life.

About Heart of America Humane Society
PO Box 12703, Overland Park, KS 66282, US
Founded in 1992, the Heart of America Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. It is entirely volunteer-run. Heart of America Humane Society doesn’t run a shelter; instead, the dedicated volunteers partner with two Kansas City area shelters to help their dogs and cats find their forever homes.
Heart of America Humane Society is a 100% volunteer organization working to find good homes for animals. We do not have a shelter of our own, instead we have created a cooperative partnership with the Lee’s Summit Municipal Animal Shelter and Kansas City Kansas Animal Services. We have adoption events most Saturdays at PetSmart Olathe, PetSmart Overland Park, and PetSmart Lee’s Summit.
In addition to working with local shelters, we also have a network of volunteer foster homes. Fostering gives us the opportunity to observe and evaluate an animal’s behavior and traits outside of the intimidating shelter environment. That foster knowledge helps us create a much better match between an animal’s personality and their new human(s).
Recently, we have expanded and we now also have an experienced Outreach Team that goes out into the community to assist people and their animals to ensure the animals' basic needs are being et.
We also have a TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) Team that is actively involved in getting community cats spayed and neutered in order to control the cat population in our community.
