Hope everyone stayed warm and dry today and enjoyed the extra day off because its back to course on Tuesday. Pick ups maybe running a little behind schedule but please be patient. See you tomorrow smile emoticon

NO COURSE ON MONDAY GUYS...Due to the uncertainty of the weather and what Cyclone Pam may bring, Matapuna will definitely be closed to staff and students tomorrow Monday 16 March. We could possibly remain closed Tuesday 17 March but a decision will be made Monday evening and your tutors will let you know the outcome. Stay safe people.

Something to consider for a community based project

Volunteers needed

Our volunteers are an essential part of life at the shelter. Every day all the animals receive ‘room service’, where their pens and cages are ...thoroughly cleaned. We also have volunteers who do valuable work around the shelter, such as lawn mowing and maintenance. .

You can give just 1- 2 hours a week to help us. We have an information sheet here to let potential shelter helpers know more about the work they’ll be doing.

Animal Care Volunteers
Many reasons animals come to us feeling hungry, scared, stressed and sometimes sick. They need especially gentle and quiet handling while they settle in.

We need regular volunteers to help with the daily cleaning, emptying litter boxes and setting out food, bedding and toys for our cats and kittens. Our dog pens also need full cleaning, and to have bedding, toys and food set out. We often have other small animals, such as rabbits and birds, who also need our attention.

Along with cleaning cages and other manual jobs, such as laundry and mopping floors, all of the animals in our care need lots of love and attention. We want all of our foster animals to be happy, and they often crave human interaction. The dogs need to be walked regularly and to be socialized with people, and each other. Cats will always welcome a cuddle.

Non Animal Care Volunteers

We often need help with odd jobs around the shelter, such as maintenance and one off projects. Some of the areas we could always use help with are:
– Gardening – Electrical – Builders – Joiners
Cleaners – Bricklayers – Painters/Decorators – Printers

Everyone’s welcome! If you have an area of expertise you’d like to offer, we’d love to hear from you!
