Do you have a pet-friendly office seeking a new temporary employee? Cedar Bend Humane Society is seeking local businesses to hire (foster) temporary workers to fill the position of “Office Cat” until a permanent position (adoption) can be secured.
Cedar Bend Humane Society is offering an “Office Cat” program. The shelter will select an adoptable cat, or you may select one, with the appropriate temperament for your office.
What will you need to provide?
Social media exposure for the office cat
Litter / food / litter box / toys / bed
Assisting in finding the cat a new home with CBHS adoption approval
Daily care and tender loving care
What will Cedar Bend Humane Society provide?.
Veterinary and medical care
Business recognition on CBHS social media
It’s a win-win situation. The shelter cat experiences freedom, comfort, and enrichment outside of the shelter. You supply exposure for the cat to help them find a permanent home. This also provides additional room at the shelter, allowing CBHS to save more lives. Rehoming is a top priority of Cedar Bend Humane Society. Fostering pets outside of the shelter is a very successful way of doing this.
Business employees benefit from pets in the workplace by decreasing their stress and increasing job performance. Pets are great morale boosters and studies indicate they help lower absenteeism.
The adoption fee is $35 payable to the Cedar Bend Humane Society when a permanent home is found. Once you select your office cat, the Cedar Bend Humane Society will feature your business and office cat on our Facebook page and blog - Cedar Bend Scoop.
