If you’re looking for a fulfilling way to give back to the community and make a meaningful impact, we invite you to join the Ten Lives team. With a variety of roles to choose from, there’s an opportunity for everyone.
Our volunteers are immensely valued, their dedication and passion contributing significantly to the welfare of our beloved feline residents and reinforcing our community outreach efforts.
The role of an Op Shop Retail Assistant offers
a chance to make a real difference. By helping sell a variety of pre-loved items in our friendly Op Shops at Margate, North Hobart and New Norfolk, volunteers directly support animal welfare.
The job entails warmly serving customers, handling stock rotation, and keeping the shop tidy. Plus there’s a delightful task of caring for our resident cats – a highlight that promises daily bouts of joy!
The position of Animal Care Assistant at the shelter in New Town is a hands-on role for those who enjoy staying active. Responsibilities include feeding our cats, cleaning and general animal care tasks. Of course, one of the most enjoyable duties is taking time for cuddles and walks, essential for the well-being of our furry residents.
For those interested in advocacy and education, the Community & Education Assistant role is purrfect! This position involves conducting shelter tours, participating in community events, and delivering educational presentations. It’s an opportunity to make a lasting impact on the community’s approach to cat care and wildlife protection.
Perhaps one of the most fulfilling roles is that of a Foster Carer. These special volunteers offer their homes as temporary havens for cats needing extra love and care.
From shy or recovering cats to kittens too young for adoption, foster carers provide the nurturing environment these animals need. We, at Ten Lives, ensure that the carers have all they need, from food and litter trays to medical care.
Volunteering at Ten Lives isn’t merely about lending a hand; it’s about being part of a mission that truly changes lives. It’s a unique opportunity to give back to your community, engaging in fulfilling, fun and heartwarming experiences.
Ten Lives Cat Centre is a self-funded animal charity that relies on donations and volunteers to care for and rehome the unwanted cats and kittens of Tasmania.
