Volunteer Shelter Coordinator

Job purpose:    We’re looking for an experienced administrative manager who can help us become more efficient and effective at executing our mission. Below is a fairly comprehensive scope of the job responsibilities.

FFF mission:    The mission of Forgotten Felines and Fidos, a nonprofit, all-volunteer, no-kill animal organization in Germansville, Pa., is to reduce the number of homeless, unwanted cats by offering a low-cost spay/neuter program and by working together with the community to help control the feline population.

We provide a supportive environment for all of the cats at our shelter until they can be matched with their forever homes, or shelter them for the rest of their lives, if necessary.  In addition, we provide medical care for our sick and injured felines in a nurturing environment.

We are committed to educating feral colony caretakers and the general public on the humane treatment of feral cats. We offer a trap-neuter-release (TNR) program to encourage spaying/neutering of feral cats, followed by returning them to their natural habitats.
