Do you love cats even when you can’t pet them? Do you want to help save their lives through trap/neuter/return? We’re looking for someone with experience, professionalism, a great attitude and a lot of love to give to community cats in the Washington County area. You’ll be in charge of trapping cats who need to be spayed and neutered, driving them to clinics for their operations, and returning them once they’ve recovered. It’s the most humane and most effective way of reducing the number of outdoor cats and giving them a better quality of life. Of course, there’ll all be kinds of odds and ends you’ll need to look after, including keeping the traps in good, working order, staying on top of schedules, and relating comfortably with people in the cats’ neighborhoods. You’ll need to be very reliable and work independently. But also be a part of Best Friends and our mission, representing us with warmth and knowledge when speaking to others in the community about this important work. Are you feeling like you’re a match? Are you getting that tingle of “what if”? Then please drop us an application! This might be exactly the job you were meant to do.

Every day, more than 9,000 dogs and cats are killed in America’s shelters simply because they don’t have a safe place to call home. By increasing the number of people who adopt pets and implementing spay/neuter programs to reduce the number of animals who enter shelters, we know we can end the killing. We know we can Save Them All. Best Friends Animal Society has been building effective life-saving programs for nearly 30 years. When we began, 17 million animals died every year in shelters. Today, thanks to caring people like you, that number is down to 4 million. Work with us to help Save Them All!
