The hours would be 8am-11am but the full three hour shift would not be necessary, even an hour would be helpful! The duties would include washing dishes, sweeping & mopping, and washing litter pans. 

If you are able to help us, please give us a call at 715-536-3459 to set a time to come in. Thank you!
