*Training for both positions will be provided, and will take place on weekends. Training may be 1-3 days on weekends, depending on the position.

Please remember that our ability to rescue cats is directly limited by the number of adoption and surrender coordinators we have.  If we do not receive help, we will not be able to maximize our capacity to help as many animals as we can.  You can literally help save lives by joining our team!

Thank you.
