Cat Volunteer Orientation: January
How old do I have to be to volunteer with cats?
To volunteer with cats you must be 14 years of age or older. Children younger than 14 may volunteer with an adult as a “junior volunteer.” If you are under 14 and wish to volunteer with cats, you must attend orientation and training with the adult who will be volunteering with you.
When can I volunteer?
Cat volunteer shifts are one hour long. You can volunteer Monday through Friday, anytime between 10 am-6 pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am-3 pm. If you volunteer on
Saturday, you will be required to work with adopters. On Sunday, we are closed to the public.
We do ask that any volunteer who signs up to train is willing to work a minimum of one shift per week.
What do volunteers do?
A female volunteer with cat volunteer duties includes socializing cats, grooming, helping adopters find their perfect pet, assembling adoption carriers, working adoption events and just providing lots of love to the cats and kittens in our care.
How do I start?
Come to one of our monthly orientations! Dates and times are listed below. You do not need to sign-up or register in advance. During the orientation, you will sign up for a second hands-on training session. Multiple times and dates will be available throughout the following two weeks. After your hands-on training, you will be able to sign-up to volunteer.
Where is orientation?
Orientation and training are held at the center, located at 1006 Grigsby Hayes Court in Franklin.
