PETCO RANSON TEAM: Would you be interested in being part of our Petco weekly care team? Volunteers sign up to help on any given day at the Petco in Ranson to go in and check on any cats in the cages. You will change their bedding if needed, refill food and water, clean the cage in needed, scoop litter boxes and tend to the general needs of the cats. This typically takes less than an hour if all four cages are occupied.
TRANSPORT TEAM: Would you be interested in being part of our Transport Team? Transport Team members will receive alerts when we need help with the transport of cats, usually to and from the ER or to vet appointments when fosters are unable due to work or personal duties. You must use your own vehicle and have a valid driver's licence and active car insurance.
