Joining others who are volunteering their time to feed and care for cats who have strayed or been abandoned provides an important opportunity for Josh Bott to contribute to the community whilst fulfilling his personal goal of being more independent.

Each week, Josh and his support worker, Cody Correia from Identitywa, visit the Centre located in Kelmscott where they spend time with the cats who are all waiting to be adopted.

Established in 2012, the Armadale Animal Rescue Group is a not-for-profit animal shelter who relies solely on the generosity of its volunteers and local business to ‘Help animals find their furever homes!’.

Volunteer, Carolyn Bryors, says the Centre welcomes volunteers from all areas of the community.

“We exist to help the cats and our community, and we totally rely on volunteers to operate our shelter so it is wonderful to have Josh and Cody’s help,” said Ms Bryors.

Cody said he was attracted to working for Identitywa because they have a wonderful reputation for supporting people with disability.

“I really value Identitywa’s vision ‘to see all people live with a sense of purpose, a sense of belonging and a sense of well-being’,” said Cody.

“Helping Josh to achieve his goal of a more independent life is really important to me.”

Josh said he likes volunteering because it makes him feel good and he likes making a difference in the cats’ lives.
