Feline Transport Team

Position description: Nearly half of all of the cats adopted from PAWS are adopted from PAWS Cat City adoption center in Seattle's University District. Feline Transport Team members transport cats and kittens from our shelter in Lynnwood to PAWS Cat City and vice versa. Team members might also help transport cats to offsite adoption events. Between the months of April and December, we make as many as 10 transports a week.
