Become a Sanctuary Volunteer
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Pet Pride! It takes many hands to operate our sanctuary, and we wouldn’t be successful without dedicated volunteers. Whether you are able to help out on a regular basis or for a special event, we appreciate your time and so do our cats!
Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.
How you can help
Please review the volunteer opportunities listed below. You’ll be asked to indicate a preference on the application form. If you have a special talent not listed here, we’d love to hear about it!
1. Caretaker Volunteer (mornings only)
Before the sanctuary opens to the public each day, Caretaker Volunteers are already busy with a variety of tasks essential to maintaining the health and well-being of our cats and kittens. In addition to giving out plenty of ear scratches, Caretaker Volunteers clean cat rooms and condos, empty and clean litter boxes, feed cats, wash dishes, sweep, vacuum and do laundry, all to provide our cats with a healthy and safe environment.
2. Enrichment Volunteer (afternoons only)
In our busy sanctuary environment, we need help from volunteers who can spend quality time with our feline guests. Cats and kittens benefit from social interaction, mental stimulation and physical activity, all of which contribute to their overall health. Socialization and enrichment activities may include vocal interaction, touch, gentle handling and interactive play.
3. Pet Pride Ambassador (afternoons only)
We rely on our Ambassadors to greet visitors with a smile and let them know we’re glad they came. These volunteers guide visitors through their sanctuary experience, giving tours, answering questions and sharing stories.
4. Groundskeeping Volunteer
If you like to work in the great outdoors, then this opportunity is for you. We are looking for individuals to help us maintain our gardens and grounds. This opportunity is seasonal and will be scheduled accordingly.
5. Special Events Volunteer
Help us spread the word about Pet Pride! We hold special events at the sanctuary and out in the community in order to share our mission and raise awareness of what we do. Special Events Volunteers may represent Pet Pride at community events, fundraisers and other activities throughout the year.
