Regular Volunteer Opportunity 
The GTHS Cat Adoption Counselor assists the public by answering any questions about cat ownership, the adoption process and the cats and kittens available for adoption. This role is integral to matching the right cat (personality type, energy level, special home requirements, etc.) with the right adoptive family. The Cat Adoption Counselor prepares adoption kits and answers questions about the cats and kittens we have available for adoption (in person). The Cat Adoption Counselor also assists the public with the identification of cats and kittens in the adoption rooms, provides assistance with the completion of adoption applications and facilitates the adoption. There is also the opportunity to attend off-site adoption events in the community. Playing with and cuddling the cats and kittens is required, as this helps you get to know our feline residents; ensuring we match them with the purrrfect family!
