Shelter Cleaning Program

With only 2-3 caretakers looking after 300+ shelter animals, keeping the shelter clean can be a challenge. The cleaning program is a practical, low-budget way to help out at the shelter.

With only 2-3 caretakers looking after 300+ shelter animals, keeping the shelter clean can be a challenge. The cleaning program is a practical, low-budget way to help out at the shelter.

Cleaning may sound like an unexciting task, but a clean shelter is essential to keeping the animals healthy and happy.

What do bring

We keep cleaning materials in the shelter, however the consumables tend to run out very quickly. To ensure that there is no shortage, it’s best to bring/donate the following:

  • Pail and dippers (tabo)
  • Detergent powder
  • Bleach
  • Deck brushes
  • Brooms
  • Dust pans
  • Rags
  • XXL garbage bags
  • Old newspapers

Areas to clean

Animal areas — These areas are always exposed to poop and pee, so they need to be thoroughly cleaned.

PARC grounds — You may be asked to sweep and mop the floors, pick up trash, and cut grass.

Storage rooms — These areas need to be cleaned to keep rats and cockroaches out.

Others — Food and water bowls, crates, shelves, and other equipment may also need to be cleaned.

Shelter Cleaning Guidelines

To make this a worthwhile experience for your group, we recommend a minimum of 3 participants. Please also take note of the following guidelines:

Cleaning attire

Participants must wear comfortable attire, and bring a change of clothes if preferred. YES to pants, lightweight and durable tops, and closed shoes. NO to shorts, skirts, revealing tops, and slippers. Prepare to get wet!

Safety precautions

The shelter animals are vaccinated, but it’s best if participants have rabies and tetanus shots. If not, please refrain from handling the animals as a precaution. Working gloves and mosquito repellent are recommended.

Cleaning is at 2:00 p.m.

Please arrive on time so that we could give you instructions and a quick tour of the areas where you will be asked to clean.
