TCR’s Line 3 at Risk of Being Shutdown
Toronto Cat Rescue operates a “Help for Cats” (or “Line 3“) hotline for people inquiring about surrendering their cats or rescuing local strays and ferals. Our hotline is currently at risk of being shutdown, due to a severe volunteer shortage. Without volunteers picking up shifts, the hotline will not survive. This helpline is one of the only ways that Torontonians can seek advice and assistance for their ‘cat problem’, and it is entirely volunteer-run.
Can you help? This role requires a minimum commitment of 6 months. You will have one shift per week where you will pick up and reply to phone calls and emails from the public. Coordinators can expect to devote at least 2-4 hours on the day of their shift to answering and returning inquires, with follow-up during the rest of the week also being required. Communication during a shift is done from your home or work using your own phone and email account, so regular email access is mandatory. Experience with Trap-Neuter-Return and feral cats is an asset, but is not necessary. Training is provided. If you are a self-motivated person who loves to help and offer advice about cats – this is the volunteer role for you!
The shifts that we currently need filled as soon as possible include:
If you are able to help, please fill in the form today – do not delay!
