Be a #kittencruiser
If you’ve volunteered with us at NKLA or Best Friends Animal Society, you qualify for this!
THE KITTENS ARE COMING! One of the easiest ways to help have an immediate impact on lifesaving is signing up to be an on-call kitten cruiser.
Every summer, we received dozens of calls a week to pick up underage kittens from the six LA Animals Services shelters. It’s hard to be at multiple shelters at once, so volunteering to be on call to pick up kittens using your own vehicle (based on your days/times availability + preferred shelter locations) is a quick way to save lives.
Signing up for this team puts you on the “on-call list” to receive text and/or email alerts- so you don’t have to worry about committing to every plea that comes out. And the time you spend being a kitten cruiser counts toward your monthly hours!
Volunteers interested in helping would be asked to transport the kittens in their own vehicle from the shelter(s) of their choice to our Best Friends Pet Adoption & Spay/ Neuter Center in Mission Hills, CA so they can be admitted to our kitten nursery. Calls are often urgent, and would require being able to get on the road immediately for transporting, though there may be limited opportunities for next day pickups.
This opportunity is open to current volunteers only – we are working out a way to sign up new volunteers just for this need in Digital Cheetah very soon! Sign up HERE to become an on-call kitten cruiser!
