Petco Adoption Event Team Member for

Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions
2675 E Flamingo Rd #3, Las Vegas, NV 89121

At Homeward Bound, our weekend Petco adoption events are a time of lots of joy – and lots of craziness! In the span of just a few hours over one or two days, during our busy season, we see literally dozens of cats and kittens go home to their forever families. That’s a lot of adoptions! These events call for level-headed, multi-tasking, people-savvy superstars to keep adopters on the right track, help out with what our Petco event lead needs, and of course, keep our kitties comfortable while they wait. We are looking for a handful of volunteers to help out with these weekend fun days! Volunteers are needed to:
  • Arrive before or after the event to set-up and/or breakdown tables, kennels, seating, etc.
  • Aid with checking in adopters as they arrive for their appointments, according to event protocol and priority
  • Help with filling out paperwork, organizing adoption folders (with needed handouts, vaccine records, etc.), assisting with adoption counseling as needed
  • Keeping our patient cats company; ensure they have blankets, water, food, etc. to stay comfy while they eye their future family
These weekend events typically run from 10:30am – 4:30pm (or earlier, if all our kitties are adopted before then!) on Saturday and Sunday (or just Saturday if, again, all our cats are adopted). Volunteers are not expected to work the entire event and we’ll gladly take any time you can spare before, during, or after! All we ask is volunteers are:
  • Fit to stand, squat, bend, twist, and lift approx. 50 lbs (to set-up/breakdown)
  • Comfortable in forward-facing, person-to-person interactions; there are lots of people here!
  • Able to work in a fast-paced, high-stress, multi-tasking environment
Our weekend events are a crazy time – but fulfilling. Every weekend you'll make happy families for humans and felines! Homeward Bound puts hundreds of cats with their people each year at these events, and we’d love for you to join us. Visit homewardboundcats.org to learn more about us and fill out a volunteer application!

Petco weekend adoption events are one of the most fulfilling (and craziest) things we do at Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions (HBCA). It’s primetime for our organization to get visibility with the public and, of course, adopt out lots of cats! Busy doesn’t begin to describe the many aspects of the public, the organization, and Petco staff that need to be handled and executed for a great experience for all. We are looking for a Petco lead counselor and site manager for these weekend events. Some responsibilities include:
  • Reviewing adoption applications pre-event, matching adopters with cats/kittens, and using proper judgment to approve/deny adopters based on HBCA requirements
  • Preparing and organizing event set-up, supply delivery, event takedown
  • Working with our foster coordinator to arrange times for cats/kittens to be dropped off or picked up (if not adopted), and ensuring all paperwork is ready and available for a seamless adoption process
  • Working with our volunteer coordinator to recruit volunteers, develop roles to match event needs, and provide on-site training as needed to team members
  • Adhering to Petco rules and following COVID guidelines
  • Maintaining a polite, informative, and courteous demeanor despite sometimes overwhelming environmental circumstances
We know, it’s a lot! Yet this individual reflects our organization to the public – and helps find homes for our cats every weekend. This position is Saturday & Sunday specific, typically from 10am – 4pm (hours change depending on cat availability). All we ask is this volunteer is:
  • Fit to stand, squat, bend, twist, and lift approx. 50 lbs
  • Capable of working with diverse populations whether the public, donors, volunteers, management, or Petco staff; maintain and build upon professional relationships
  • Able to work in a fast-paced, high-stress, multi-tasking environment
  • An excellent communicator: answering questions of staff, adopters, volunteers, and expressing respectfully expectations or needs
  • Comfortable using best judgment to match adopters with cats – and declining adopters if necessary
Homeward Bound organizes dozens of weekend Petco adoption events over the course of a year – and these events send hundreds of cats and kittens to their new homes! We need someone passionate and ready to handle these events and help every deserving cat in our care find their families.
