Albie..I am ready for my own home
A great adoption counselor helped me get a new forever home!

Adoption Counselors (adults only) help both the animals and our customers. You will provide great customer service as you learn how to be a 'matchmaker' to help people find their feline companion. This is an extremely fulfulling volunteer role - the more animals we can find great homes for, the more homeless animals we can save! You will also interact with and assist in the care of the cats. This may include checking for general well-being, providing love and attention, clean-up, and other assigned duties.

The 1st step to volunteering: Attend New Volunteer Orientation (sign up at you will be required to attend additional Adoptions Training as well as be mentored "on the job" while you learn the ropes of your role. Must be friendly with positive attitude, great interpersonal skills, and patience with and compassion for rescued animals.

At our Patricia L. Holmes Adoption Center (6001 Folsom Blvd in East Sacrament), we showcase adult cats waiting to be adopted into a "forever home." We also showcase cats and kittens at the PetSmart store located at the corner of Arden Way and Watt Avenue in Sacramento.
