Cats who spend most of their time outside are referred to
as “community cats”. They may have vastly different personalities but they are
all referred to as community cats, and all cats who will be outdoors, even for
just a short period of time, should be spayed/neutered and vaccinated. TNR is
the only proven humane way to reduce the number of the cats who live outside,
as well as the number of cats coming into the shelter. For a high intake
animal shelter such as ACCT Philly, ensuring cats are efficiently provided with
TNR services and returned to their homes is essential to reducing shelter
crowding and preventing unnecessary shelter euthanasia. By supporting all
aspects of the Community Cats program, the Community Cat Assistant is integral
to the success of this ACCT Philly lifesaving initiative.

The Community Cat Assistant is responsible for assisting staff with all aspects of the program including, but not limited to: placing cats at Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia (ACCT Philly) out to the field; planning and helping with mass TNR events; communicating with stakeholders regarding programmatic activities; maintaining program related data. Assistants are expected to provide quality customer service, ensure accurate record keeping and disseminate accurate and appropriate information regarding ACCT policies and animals.
