New openings for volunteers in our Bottle Baby Kitten Nursery!
May 20, 2013
We have many tiny babies to feed and have added an additional training class in the Bottle Baby Nursery for feeders. If you want to learn to feed and care for our tiny baby kittens, please contact [email protected]austinpetsalive.org to register for class this Friday, May 24th, 6:30pm-8:30pm. Please note the following:
In your email, please include your full name, and the full name of those you are planning to attend with (if additional). We will send you a confirmation email to let you know your space is secured for this session
Those under the age of 13 are not allowed in the nursery
Teens 13-15 can come with a parent or guardian to help (a great opportunity to learn how to do paperwork, responsibility of general care, etc.) but cannot feed kittens
Those ages 16-17 can come to training with a parent or guardian and can feed kittens
Age 18+ can feed solo
Court ordered community service hours are not available in this specific program
Loving and responsible individuals are a must! This is a great opportunity to spend time helping our newborns, whether you're a teenager, retiree, or something in between!
While this is a remarkable experience, baby kittens require a lot of care and attention. Please note that individuals must be able to bend and stoop to work with our bottom crates, and must be able to lift 20 pounds.
If you have any other questions about training in this fun and incredibly rewarding program, contact us! We look forward to hearing from you, and meeting our kitten's newest helpers on Friday!
