Perry’s Place Volunteers
As a Perry’s Place volunteer, you are part of the team that creates a homelike environment for hundreds of homeless cats and kittens every year. Perry’s Place volunteers help maintain the sanctuary during public hours to ensure the cats are comfortable and the facility is ready for visitors. They spend quiet time socializing shyer cats and kittens, as well as working with senior or special needs cats who need extra grooming and TLC, and they often help prepare for each weekend’s mobile adoption events. We ask for a volunteer commitment of at least four hours a month for six months during our public hours, which are Thursday and Friday from 3 to 8 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 6 pm.
As a SpayShip volunteer, you provide support to a program that has facilitated the spay or neuter of more than 5,000 cats and kittens since it began in 2009. SpayShip volunteers meet on Saturdays for community outreach aimed at spreading the word about this free transport service, focusing particularly on neighborhood canvassing in targeted areas of the San Fernando Valley. They also help periodically with tabling events, passing out flyers and talking with the public about the SpayShip program in particular and the importance of spaying and neutering in general. We ask for a volunteer commitment of twice a month for at least two hours. More information about SpayShip can be found here.
