Volunteer

  Volunteering is a very rewarding experience.  At the shelter you help to get abused and homeless cats a loving home, while you brush up        on your cleaning skills.  You will get to meet some really great people and cats.  Just giving a few hours makes all the difference.

  Help is needed in a number of areas;

  • Shelter roster

  • Administration

  • Fostering

  • Fundraising

  • Shelter maintenance

  • Pet placement

  • Provision co-ordination

 

Please note: Cat shelter roster duties include cage cleaning, litter box maintenance, feeding, general shelter cleaning, laundry, grooming and medicating (when necessary) and of course, socialising the cats and kittens.
