Save Our Cats and Kittens, Inc.  (SOCKS)

 
 
  1. We NEED volunteers!

  2. BulletCLEANING ROOMS – Kitten room, kitchen, sick room, and yard.  Chores include cleaning cages, feeding, watering, cleaning litter boxes, counters, shelves, and if qualified, administering medicines as needed.

  3. BulletJUST LOVE TO CLEAN – Come in periodically and help us catch up on the deep cleaning in any of the rooms where the regular shifts don’t have the time.

  4. BulletVET RUNNER – Some days cats or kittens need someone to take them to the vet, usually in the AM, and pick them up in the PM, post medial records & medication instructions.  Volunteer 1 day a week, a month, or 1 week a month.

  5. BulletTHRIFT STORE ASSISTANCE - Sorting donations, cleaning, painting, helping customers load purchases and unload donations.

  6. BulletFOSTER CARE (Not available for Community Service volunteers)– Temporary care of kittens, anything from nursing to simply caring for them so they learn to trust people and live in a home.  Sometimes involves caring for a shy cat that needs special time and attention for a few weeks, or for a health reason.

  13. BulletSPECIAL EVENTS TEAM – Each year we promote adoptions and fund raisers and need help for a day, sometimes a few days, preparing for or during the event.

  14. BulletDO MEDS –  We need to administer medication, pills, or ointments, to some of our cats.  Each shift needs someone who can do this.
