Cat Adoption Coordinators

Do you enjoy interacting with people? Do you love cats?  If so, please consider joining our cat adoption coordinator team. In particular, we are interested in recruiting coordinators who have weekday evening and Saturday availabilities.

The role of a cat adoption coordinator includes the following:

1.) Meet with and introduce cats to walk-in visitors
2.) Conduct in person interviews with adoption applicants
3.) Ask follow up questions, and use judgment to assess suitability of adoptive family and home, turning down applications if necessary
4.) Complete adoption paperwork and enter into computer
5.) Spend designated hours at the shelter on certain weekends to be there for walk in visitors and appointments

All training will be provided, and will take place on three consecutive weekends. After that, the time commitment is flexible, but averages about 3-4 hours a week.  This is an extremely rewarding position that directly impacts the number of lives we are able to save at EHS.

Cat Volunteer Trainers

We are also currently in need of more cat volunteer trainers in order to keep up with the increased volunteer applications we have been receiving in recent months. Volunteers are the lifeblood of EHS, and we are committed to providing opportunities to those who wish to volunteer their time with us, and training them accordingly so that they can provide the best possible care to our wonderful cats.

This is a fun position, that will allow you to meet and interact with potential new volunteers and help shape the cat volunteer program. Time commitment varies depending on how many coordinators we have, but is about 4-6 hours a week on average. Full training will be provided.

The role of a cat volunteer trainer includes the following:

1.) Work closely with interview team and volunteer program manager to schedule training shifts
2.) Provide training to new volunteers a.) First training is an introduction to EHS policies and procedures on the cat side, and meeting the cats at the shelter (1.5 hours), and b.) Second training is working a shift with the new volunteer shadowing and assisting on shift duties (full shift)
3.) Establish regular communications with new volunteers –  follow up after first shift, ensure that volunteers are comfortable letting you know of any concerns or observations they have
4.) Attend cat co-ordinator meetings once every 2-3 months (on a weekend)
