HOUSTON PETS ALIVE!
What Is It?: A no-kill rescue organization that creates programs to save animals most at risk of euthanasia. Its goal is to “prevent animals from entering a shelter, and for those that do, get them out alive.”
Help Needed: Help care for cats, help with adoption events, collect needed items.
Minimum Age to Volunteer: 14. Volunteers ages 14-17 must be supervised by a parent or legal guardian and may not volunteer in the dog area for liability reasons.
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.).
DONATE NEEDED ITEMS
The shelter always needs donations! Supplies like bottled water, kong toys, pill pockets, towels, and large crates are always welcome. Please call the shelter for more ideas and current needs.
