Please contact us at [email protected] for information about any of our available volunteer opportunities. Our biggest areas of need right now are in the following areas:
At the Clinic:
- Appointment Call Backs and Reminder Calls: this important volunteer role which can be done from home, has flexible days and hours and involves contacting clients to make appointments, confirm appointments, counsel new clients and answer questions.
- Patient Intake: Mornings from 7:30 – 9:00am, This is a critical volunteer role that involves greeting clients, answering questions, helping to complete intake forms, and helping clinic staff get patients situated.
- Patient Discharge: Late afternoon from 5:30 – 6:15pm, this important volunteer shift involves greeting clients, going over discharge instructions, assisting medical staff with releases.
- Data Entry of surgical records and medical notes.
- Instrument pack preparation and cleaning: this volunteer duty is “instrumental” in ensuring that our surgical packs are cleaned, sanitized and prepared for surgery the next day.
In Your Neighborhood:
Would you enjoy helping a small group of outdoor cats live healthy lives without reproducing? Every day, kind people in the East Bay and throughout the United States provide care to outdoor cats. Fix Our Ferals supports spay/neuter of all neighborhood cats, followed by care and feeding.
Caring for a colony is fascinating and rewarding. Responsible care means:
- Trap-Neuter-Return, first and foremost. Only neutered colonies can live healthy lives without outgrowing their niche in our neighborhoods.
- Daily food and water.
- Monitoring for any health problems that may arise.
In caring for any outdoor colony, we recommend that several people be involved so that work is distributed, and so that the cats will have more than one person to depend on.
If you would like to help care for an outdoor cat colony one day or more per week, we can help you find someone in your area who needs help.
