Whilst we do have some employees, much of the work completed is done by volunteers.
Cattery - 18 Charlesworth Street, Woolston
Volunteers assist with the cleaning of the pens/runs. This is normally completed between 9am and 11am each morning. The volunteers interact with the cats while they are cleaning and can spend some one on one time with them. People with suitable skills may also assist the Cattery Supervisor with rehoming the cats during our opening hours.
We currently have positions available weekday mornings cleaning. This can change as volunteers get jobs etc so please call us on (03) 3840006 to see if there is a position for the day you can volunteer.
If you love gardening, we require a couple of people to help keeps the gardens maintained at the cattery. Please phone us on (03) 3840006 if you can assist.
