Do you know that roughly 70 percent of cats who end up at shelters are killed? Of those, most are stray and free roaming, or as we like to call them, community cats. The goal of Best Friends' cat initiatives is to bring about a time of No More Homeless Pets by keeping cats safe and out of shelters.

Trap/neuter/return (TNR) has proven to be the only long-term solution to humanely control cat populations. Implementing TNR programs and relocating at-risk community cats help keep cats out of the shelter system. Best Friends is helping other communities, urban, suburban and rural, create Community Cats programs that focus on public/private partnerships and we need your help.

Best Friends Animal Society is seeking a full-time Community Cat Program Coordinator to join our Los Angeles team. This position will work with the Free Fix LA program to help reduce community cat populations. The coordinator will be responsible for carrying out fieldwork in the San Fernando Valley, trapping and working with caregivers of free-roaming cats. The coordinator will transport cats from the field to the FixNation clinic, returning them to their colony locations.

Best Friends Animal Society is a nonprofit, membership organization building no‐kill programs and partnerships that will bring about a day when there are No More Homeless Pets. The society's leading initiatives in animal care and community programs are coordinated from its Kanab, Utah headquarters, the country's largest no‐kill sanctuary. This work is made possible by the personal and financial support of a grassroots network of members and community partners across the nation.

Join Best Friends and turn your career into a labor of love. The benefits package is one of the best! Medical, Dental, Vision, Basic and Supplemental Life Insurance, Short and Long Term Disability, Child Care reimbursement, Pet Sitting reimbursement, Flexible Spending Account, Health Savings Account, PTO, Paid Holidays, Employee Assistance Program, 401K, Staff Discounts and Flex Work Policy.
