(Furry Friends Animal Shelter)
|Contact||Sherri Helsdingen, Volunteer Coordinator, Furry Friends Animal Shelter; Phone: 705-792-4911; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Duties||Furry Friends Animal Shelter is a non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to providing shelter and love to abandoned, lost or rescued cats and kittens in the Barrie Community. We provide care to almost 1,000 animals and do not euthanize healthy animals for any reason. We are a registered charity funded by generous donors and supporters and operated completely by volunteers. |
We are looking for dependable adult animal-lovers (over 18 years of age...younger volunteers must be with a fellow volunteer who is 18+ for the entire shift) to help us match cats and kittens with people who can give them a permanent, loving home. Two weeks per month we adopt cats and kittens out of the PetSmart Adoption Centre (33 Mapleview Drive East, Barrie).
There are three main tasks:
1. Keep the kitties clean and comfortable - top up food and water, clean cages (litter boxes too!) and pet and play with them!
2. Interact with the public and potential adopters in a retail environment, giving great customer service.
3. Assess suitable adopters, complete adoption paperwork and process payments.
For more info and to apply complete and submit the Online Volunteer Application Form and a Furry Friends volunteer will follow-up with you.
