CAT CARE AT PETSMART STORES

Volunteers sign up for shifts to care for adoptable cats living at three PetSmart stores. They feed cats and clean their kennels (litter box, bedding and wipe down kennel), play with cats outside of cages, monitor/report well-being and updates through Facebook group page, and speak to prospective adopters and process adoption applications.  Volunteers can also help transport cats between locations.

Shift options: 9:30-11:30 AM, or 6-8 PM daily. Location options: PetSmart Dunvale (8380 Westheimer); PetSmart Copperfield (7050 Highway 6 North); PetSmart Bunker Hill (9718 Katy Fwy.).
