How will this volunteer opportunity benefit you?
Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue is an organization made up entirely of volunteers, and its ability to continue helping stray cats is dependent on the strength of the volunteer team. There is no commitment required to volunteer with OSCatR. Some volunteers are consistently helping out, while others contribute less frequently and as they are able. Every contribution is appreciated.
In addition to helping save the lives of homeless cats, volunteering can be a rewarding experience for any individual. Volunteering is an excellent way to learn new skills and get work experience. Opportunities are available to coordinate events, work with a team, manage paperwork, manage media and databases, assist with finances, and learn new skills. Volunteering letters are provided which are useful when applying for employment.
Volunteering is a great way to meet people that share the same passions and interests. You can make lifelong friends, all while making a difference in the lives of cats in need and having a sense of satisfaction knowing that lives were saved.
In short, volunteers are the heart and soul of the rescue organization. By volunteering with OSCatR, you can make a big difference in the lives of stray cats in the community, while enjoying an enriching personal experience.
