Information for volunteers
We get many emails and phone calls from animal friends who are interested in volunteer work so here are the most important things to consider:
Since the shelter supports itself entirely through donations unfortunately we are unable to pay for your effort. However the biggest reward can be the affection and trust of the animals. Most of our volunteers work here only in their sparetime.
If you are new to the volunteer work, we kindly ask you to come on a Saturday for the first time. Every Saturday is an open day, when you could get to know the shelter and get involved in our daily work. (Please contact Molnár Piroska or Alma Kata at the shelter)
Can someone do a voluntary job if he is under the legal age?
Everyone above the age of 16 can be a volunteer. (Below the age of 16 there is no possibility for independent work in the shelter. Younger children, however, may help us with parental supervision.)
Below the age of 18 a written parental permission is needed in every case, which has to be submitted to Piroska Molnár in the office upon arrival. Between the age of 16 and 18, voluntary work can be
done on weekdays with parental
supervision only, and on Saturdays individually as well (under the supervision of experienced volunteers) .
Please note that the shelter is not for summer day-boarding. A serious and often dangerous work is done here, and we do not have the capacity to care for children left in the shelter by their parents in the morning with the idea of saving the costs of day-boarding or a summer camp. That's why we allow volunteers under 18 to work only with their parents on weekdays
Volunteers can help us in the following tasks:
- keeping the cats' area clean
- volunteers with more experience can help in the carantin section
- helping around barnyard
Those volunteers, who cannot come to the shelter personally, can help us with the following tasks:
- Promoting the shelter, distributing leaflets and posters
- Looking for adopters for our pets living in our shelter
- Recruiting new volunteers
- Fostering animals (we are continuously looking for temporary adopters)
- Placing donation urns and leaflets in shops (Urns can be placed in the volunteer's shop, or in a shop of family members,friends, or where the volunteer can arrange a placement.)
If you feel like volunteering, join us, we would welcome you in our team. Before undertaking the job please read
through the "Rules for volunteers", available at our shelter.
For further information please contact Alma Kata at email@example.com or the personnel.
PLEASE OFFER YOUR HOME AS A FOSTER HOME
Since we rescue lots of cats, many of them need special attention and/or treatments, we continuosly seek for fosterhomes. Fostering an animal means you take care of an animal for a limited time only while the shelter covers all costs. The time periods may vary depending on the conditions of the cats: you may need to rehabilitate the cat,
so that it will accept human love or overcome behavioral problems; you may need to nurse it to health if there are health problems; kittens may need appr. 6 weeks (until 3 injections) or until the cat is adopted.
A foster will be responsible for evaluating the rescue kitty, to ensure that the cats are placed in homes suitable to the cats’ needs. For instance a very shy and calm cat should not be adopted by a busy family with children.
Fostering can be THE MOST rewarding and fulfilling thing a true cat lover will ever do! If you are willing to help please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, on the behalf of our cats!
