Subject: FCC: We need volunteers!
The Feral Cat Coalition needs your help!
We need 8 more Telephone Screeners to pick up the calls from our hotline
and 3 more Weekly Vet Contacts to make vet appointments.
Please look over the job descriptions below to see if you would be interested in volunteering.
TELEPHONE SCREENERS QUICK JOB DESCRIPTION
You will pick up the calls from the FCC hotline one day a month. There are usually 7-15 calls per day on our hotline. The spring and summer months can have more calls. You will be calling the public who left a message on your day, the FCC volunteer trap depots for traps, the FCC volunteer weekly vet contacts for reservations to a weekly vet hospital and the FCC volunteer clinic reservations coordinator to make reservations at our monthly clinics. You will screen your calls to make sure the cat(s) are feral and unowned and explain to the public how to trap and transport their feral cats. This is not a one day a month job! The screener is the first person the public talks to so we are looking for friendly, reliable people who will follow through and call the public and FCC volunteers in a timely manner.
This can be a very rewarding job helping the public with their feral cats, but there can be a lot of phone time. If you only have a cell phone with limited minutes this job might not be for you. If you are interested in being a screener, please call our screener coordinator Sue Davis at 619-477-6949.
WEEKLY VET CONTACT QUICK JOB DESCRIPTION
You will be responsible for making spay and neuter appointments for one or more vet hospitals that spay and neuter feral cats for the FCC during the week. The weekly vet contact is the only person who communicates with the weekly vet hospital. You will develop a rapport with your vet hospital(s) while having fun setting up appointments along with getting a feeling satisfaction when you help people directly. You will be dealing with the "screened" public but will need to double check that the cats are really feral and will be in a trap, not a carrier. You will also be responsible for keeping the vets office(s) supplied with the medications it needs from the FCC.
We are looking for friendly, reliable people who will follow through and call the public, FCC volunteers and their weekly vet hospital in a timely manner. If you are interested in being a weekly vet contact, please contact our weekly vet coordinator Barb Caliri at 619-466-0941.
Thank you for helping San Diego's feral kitties.
