PAWS Needs Volunteers

Help find homes for cats in need! PAWS houses adoptable cats at the Grant Avenue PETCO, and the team of volunteers dedicated to caring for them is looking for new members. Volunteers are needed to provide cats with care and comfort, clean cages, and process adoption applications. If you can commit to at least two shifts per month, please contact Rich at

The following shifts are open:
Weekday mornings, any 1-2 hours between 7-11 a.m.
Weekday evenings: 6-8 p.m.

Weekends: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Any training you need will be provided. By joining the team, you will help make matches between loving adopters and cats who are waiting patiently for a chance at the home they deserve. If you can’t volunteer but would like to adopt a cat, please stop by PETCO to meet your new best friend! PAWS volunteers are on-hand to help on weekdays from 6-8 p.m., and on weekends from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
