Want to make a real difference in the life of a shelter animal? The Buddy Foundation needs you. The Buddy foundation is unique in the fact that we are all volunteers, not a single person is paid. All the time, energy, and funds go directly to the care of our animals.
Some of the things we need volunteers for:
Cat Bright Start Team
Provides the first meal of the day to the cats between the hours of 7 - 11 am
Cleans the cat rooms and cages
Change blankets and bedding
Scoop and clean litter boxes
Loving Cat Fosters
Provide special needs shelter cat(s) a little extra TLC by opening your home and heart.
Feline leukemia /feline aids, diabetic cats
Nurture and care for kittens before they are of age to come to the shelter.
Once the warm weather arrives, so do the new babies!
We are also looking for help with Publicity.
We are always in need of that special volunteer who loves animals and is willing to do almost any task, no matter how large or small. If you are that person, are 18 years or older, and can give time on a regular basis, we need you.
Some of the volunteer jobs include walking dogs, cleaning their cages, feeding etc. For cats, we also clean cages, litter boxes, floors etc. If you want to be a general volunteer and have no specific interest, we can also use your help around the shelter. Such as doing laundry, folding it, putting it in proper locations, mopping floors, cleaning windows, etc. There are all sorts of things to do. We have a meeting room that has a microwave and refrigerator, all of which need cleaning from time to time. On special occasions we have other duties, such as manning a booth at an event, collating the newsletter and getting it ready for posting, sewing or making dog and cat beds, doing yard work such as pulling weeds, deadheading flowers, and watering the gardens etc. If you have the time we will find the work for you.
Please come in and pick up a volunteer form, fill it out and return it to Buddy. Carmella is the Volunteer Coordinator and will give you a call and set up an interview. Indicate whether you want to help with cats/dogs, or any other specific task you can do.
