Volunteer at the Thrift Shop

Help us make a difference in the lives of Calgary's stray and abandoned cats!

Thrift Shop Volunteers

MEOW Charity Thrift Shop Volunteers are MEOW Foundation Ambassadors.

Retail and Receiver positions are confident and comfortable communicating with donors and customers.

Volunteer shifts are 3 to 4 hours.



MEOW encourages volunteers to commit to a six-month period for their volunteer service. This will ensure that the volunteer has received the adequate training and is familiar with all policies and procedures. In cases where a volunteer cannot commit to a six-month volunteer term, the volunteer coordinator may approve a short-term placement in accordance with operational needs.
