Volunteers needed at Furry Friends

We are looking for dependable animal lovers to help us in four key ways: at the shelter; in our shelter "Med Room"; at the PetSmart adoption centre; and in your home as foster families. Furry Friends has no paid staff and we depend completely on volunteers to care for the abandoned and abused cats and kittens in our care. There's lots of flexibility with scheduling: shifts are available mornings, afternoons and evenings, weekdays and weekends, 365 days a year. There's lots of flexibility with tasks: help us care for the kitties at the shelter; help us ensure injured or ill kitties recover in the "Med Room"; help us find permanent homes for our kitties as an adoption specialist; help us provide a home-away-from-home environment for special needs kitties in your home. At our shelter, volunteers need to be at least 16 years of age (or accompanied by an adult). PetSmart Adoption Centre volunteers need to be 18. There are opportunities to volunteer with friends and family members. Full training is provided. Click on our "volunteers" page and complete the online application form. One of our volunteer coordinators will follow-up with you right away to discuss your interests and availability! We're looking forward to welcoming you to the team!
