Peninsula Animal Aid’s plea for help

Posted: 1pm 11 Sep 2020

Peninsula Animal Aid is looking for more volunteers.

Volunteer co-ordinator Anne Carmichael says regulars are needed to help in the kennels and cattery and with Saturday hydrobath sessions.

With the non-for-profit charity helping hundreds of animals return to their owners or be rehomed every year, Anne says an army of volunteers is crucial to keep things running.

“As a priority, PAA is seeking applications from people wishing to volunteer in the kennels, cattery or hydrobath,” Anne says.

Games and grooming

Work for volunteers in the kennels includes cleaning up night soil with pooper scoopers, hosing and disinfecting kennels, feeding the pooches, washing their dishes, walking the dogs, playing games, training and grooming.

Those keen to work in the cattery can expect duties to include cleaning cat bed hammocks and coverings, brushing cat stands to remove debris, emptying, cleaning and refilling toilet trays, refilling water and food, grooming long-haired cats and affectionate handling and petting of cats to accustom them to people.

Hydrobaths popular

Anne says the Saturday hydrobath sessions are the shelter’s biggest fundraiser, with half-day shifts starting at 8am.
