Who can volunteer:
Petsmart Santa Clarita
We currently house cats in-store at two Petsmart locations – Santa Clarita and Tujunga. These cats need daily care and rely on a team of dedicated volunteers to clean, feed and play with our resident cats. For weekend adoption events, duties include set-up and tear-down (tables, cages and supplies), as well as working the event itself; transport of cats to and from the event may also be involved, depending upon the location. Volunteers should enjoy the experience of meeting and interacting with the general public and be prepared for a fair amount of lifting and standing. We ask for a volunteer commitment of at least once a month on a Saturday or Sunday, from roughly 11 am to 4 pm.
Our main sanctuary has up to twelve free-roaming rooms, many of which care for special needs populations. As a Perry’s Place volunteer, you are part of the team that creates a homelike environment by cleaning, feeding and maintaining the building to ensure it is ready for visitors. You can also spend quiet time socializing shyer cats and kittens, as well as working with senior or special needs cats who need extra grooming and TLC. Sanctuary volunteers are welcome daily from 9am-4pm. You may also train to assist during our public adoption hours which are Wednesday – Sunday from 2pm-7pm. These tasks include greeting visitors, cleaning meet and greet rooms, counseling potential adopters and completing adoption contracts.
We also need volunteers to help with administrative tasks, fundraising, photography and more! If you have a specialized skill to share, email firstname.lastname@example.org
