Help Respond to the Need

While the animals are our number one priority and require the most time and effort, it takes a lot to keep the all of our programs up and running. Volunteer help is required in many different areas. Some of the tasks available for volunteers to assist with include:

Adopt, Clean, and Feed Shifts (All Centers)
  • Involves cleaning cages at adoption centers, feeding and watering cats, and cleaning litterboxes
  • Involves socializing and handling of the cats
  • Offsite adoption locations will involve answering questions to the public about the cats and the adoption process
  • Offsite adoption centers may require some set-up/tear-down of the exercise area
  • Offsite adoption centers will involve learning to do adoption paperwork to send cats home with approved adopters
  • Clean and feed shifts require a training session for proper cleaning protocols that MUST be followed to keep our cats healthy
