PAWS-PATAS desperately requires someone to lead the cattery’s 16 dedicated volunteers.

“Want to join a great team, make new friends and receive a huge amount of satisfaction and furry love?” asked the animal charity’s vice-president Chrissie Cremore.

“We need someone who adores kittens and cats while furthering our mission to care for and re-home them.”

“We would teach you our computer system and Spanish would be useful but not essential. This is a volunteer position but we would be willing to pay for expenses incurred.”

PAWS-PATAS needs someone who is fit, dedicated, determined, conscientious and able to work two seven-hour shifts per week.

Transport would be needed to reach the shelter between Turre and Las Buganvillas but over-25s would have the use of the charity’s van and car.

Duties include:

Liaising with volunteers to ensure shifts are covered and specialised food and medication purchased

Making vet appointments for vaccinations, neutering and consultations, plus authorising vet payments

Updating the animal database, responding to emails.

Promoting fostering and adoption on Facebook and the PAWS-PATAS website and carrying out home checks

Collaborating and building a partnership with fosterers and possibly getting involved in fundraising events

For further information email or telephone 850 992 560 from Tuesday to Friday between 10.30 and 1pm.
