Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Shelter, an organization, doesn’t run for profit. “Our mission is to provide a safe, loving, forever home for endangered big cats, and to educate the public about their situation in the wild”. Our primary focus is in the rescue of cats from serious situations. Once taken in at Catty Shack Ranch, they have a loving, forever home for life. Now we need some volunteers.
What Do Volunteers Do?
Our volunteers at the Ranch do a variety of projects—including upkeep of enclosures, yard work and landscaping, cleaning, preparing residents’ food items and guiding tours. We also have our Thrift Store that needs volunteers…a perfect opportunity for the person who needs to be inside from the Florida heat, or just loves to help out with retail(零售)! Thrift Store volunteers help with selling items, cleaning, and organizing the store.
You must be at least 18 years old, if volunteering for “school community service hours”. Volunteers may be 16 years old but must be accompanied at all times by a parent or adults.
You must be able to volunteer at least 8 hours a month to be an “active” volunteer.
Before volunteering, all paperwork and appropriate documentation must be completed and turned into our Volunteer Coordinator.
