Founded on the belief that every cat matters, Purrfect Pals is working to end cat homelessness in Puget Sound communities through placement and prevention. There just aren't enough homes for cats in our area, and we are helping change that. Our cat adoption and rehabilitation programs help place homeless cats, including those with special needs, in loving homes. We work to prevent cat homelessness through our free community spay and neuter clinics, humane education programs and cat owner support initiatives. Our sanctuary prides itself in providing space for cats with special needs (including those with FIV or Leukemia), and cats with behavioral issues.We have an opening on our team for an experienced, cat loving Veterinary Technician (LVT preferred but not required if you have extensive experience) who shares our vision of a world where there is a home for every cat, even the old, sick and obnoxious. This person will be required to work weekends as needed. Our benefits include paid time off and reimbursement for medical expenses up to $1000 per year. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide medical insurance at this time.
