In general, we need to do a thorough clean out and re-organization of the space.9:30 am-NoonVeronica Petrinec7/7
#104. Animal House Cat Rescue and Adoption CenterWe house a large number of cats (200-250). To do this well requires a lot of organization, cleaning, and of course socializing with the kitties. We would ask the volunteers to help with all three elements. The organizing and cleaning tasks could include scooping litter, sweeping, cleaning carriers, folding laundry, sorting toys, organizing shelves, wiping down surfaces, etc. The cat play may be in a room with a group of cats, or one on one with a kitty in a socialization space. The kitties love visitors!9:30 am-NoonGabriella Colberg Borrero9/9
