Volunteers are our most valuable resource! At the Sanctuary, we always are looking for dedicated, cat-loving friends who can help out any or every day of the week: 

  • Take a weekly/bi-weekly shift at the Sanctuary, to help to care for our large crew
  • Refresh water bowls
  • Brush cats to keep them looking their best for adoptions
  • Be a Cat Cuddler - help socialize the Sanctuary cats
  • Clean cages, help with laundry or clean litter boxes (a glamorous job)
  • Transport cats to and from vet visits
  • Foster a Sanctuary cat in your own home


  • Facilitate behind the scenes with phone calls, answering emails, paperwork maintenance and data entry
  • Help create posters, flyers and advertising collateral that gets the word out about our adoptable cats
  • Snap cute photos and write clever bios for adoption ads
  • Get involved with fundraising: grant writing, sponsorships and corporate donations


  • Become a Sanctuary Adoption Counselor to find FURRever homes for our kitties
  • Help spread the word about the Sanctuary to new volunteers
  • Prepare cats and supplies for adoption events
  • Transport cats/kittens to and from adoption locations
  • Aid with clean up at Kitten Rescue post-adoption events
