About this opportunity

Every Cat Matters For over 50 years Cat Haven has been an integral part of our local community. Within this time hundreds of staff and volunteers have been committed to rescuing, rehoming and raising awareness for cats all over WA.

How can you help? Cat Haven currently requires motivated, people-oriented Volunteers to assist in our busy retail store. This is a fast-paced, high pressure environment as we receive over 100 phone calls and emails per day, as well as high volumes of walk-in traffic.
