Saturday’s volunteers (III)
- José Luís
Alex is co-founder of the Jardinet. She is in charge of managing the entire organisation which includes the following: coordinating the different teams and the rescues carried out, the financial management, the budget and balance sheets, drafting of reports, and the creation and coordination of diverse administrative projects and tasks.
Auri is in charge of managing new volunteers in the Jardinet dels Gats, as well as explaining to them what we do and how they can help. She also coordinates the teams and activities carried out in the organisation.
Cristina is in charge of finding the best adoption home for each of the cats that we rescue. She is extremely well coordinated with the rest of the team and the foster carers so as to help establish the ideal cat for each adopter. She manages all the adoptions and transportation of each little family member to their new home. Thanks to Cristina we ensure that the cats have a new home and a loving family that will take good care of them.
Victoria is the volunteer in charge of managing the temporary foster homes. She is very well organised as, immediately after a cat has been rescued and taken to the vets, they have a foster home to go to. They organise how the cats will be taken to their new home, as well as monitor their subsequent adaptation and reaction. In this way, we can obtain as much information as possible about each one of the cats thus allowing us to find the ideal adopter, taking into account the character of both the adopter family and the cat in question.
Esther is in charge of carrying out one of the most important, yet less visible, tasks in the Jardinet. She does the organisation accounting in order to establish how we are doing financially, as well as determine how we can continue raising money to help the cats.
Esther takes care of the sponsoring of the cats that live in the Jardinet. The sponsors are vital for the Jardinet dels Gats as they help us pay vet bills and care for the cats. Esther provides information and sends photos of their cat, or each of their cats, to the sponsors so they can see how they are getting on thanks to their donations.
Alegria and Núria
Núria and Alegria are in charge of organising the cats' visits to the vets. They also coordinate the volunteers and manage who will be taking the cats to the vets and picking them up, thus ensuring that they receive the best treatment possible.
Conxita is in charge of organising and selling Jardinet dels Gats merchandising etc, in the fairs that we organise. In addition, she shows us how to make handicrafts, works in the Jardinet dels Gats shop on Saturdays to raise funds and is a regular artist with the goods that she makes to sell for the cats. The funds raised in these fairs are used entirely to look after the cats that live in the Jardinet.
Nayra is in charge of managing the Jardinet dels Gats forum and the projects carried out within the organisation.
SA Veterinaris Vet veterinary clinic team
They have been working with us on improving the welfare of stray and abandoned cats right from the beginning. Anna and Salva have helped and taught us a lot. They are very important for the Jardinet dels Gats as they are the ones that take care of the health of our rescued cats. They are a fantastic veterinary team.
Saturdays comprise the Jardinet dels Gats open day where we attend to potential adopters, foster carers and volunteers, etc.
The volunteer team is in charge of managing the volunteers for the different activities that are carried out.
The adoption team takes care of the entire adoption process, right up until a suitable family is found for each cat.
The adoption follow-up team checks up on the cats that have been adopted, and keeps in contact with the adopters.
The sponsor team keeps in contact with all sponsors that help us with donations allowing us to feed and look after rescued cats.
Here is the Jardinet dels Gats team of volunteers that make rescues, visits to the vets, finding a new foster home for our cats whilst they are waiting to be adopted, amongst many other things, all possible.
