Volunteer - Cleaning Cat Enclosures

Once you have some experience with washing bowls, beds, or litter trays you will be offered a well earned promotion to cleaning cat enclosures (not compulsory for the washing lovers). Here you will be trained in how to keep a lovely fresh little home for our current and incoming guests. Who doesn't love preparing an AirBnB for a kitty? And of course you will have a chance to say hello to all our guests and ask their opinions on the facilities. They will of course tell you that they have not been fed for a week, but that's just typical of guests trying to get a freebie. When you have finished your shift you are welcome to give a kittie a cuddle, at no charge to you of course, all free

Volunteers who wish to assist Cat Haven on site must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be 18 years or older
  • You must be able to commit to a minimum of one, three hour shift per week (the same day each week) for a minimum of three months (excluding fundraising/event volunteers)

  • You must be able to follow and comprehend instructions that are given to you, and be able to work without direct supervision
