SMALL ACTS TRANSFORM THE WORLD

Kitten Rescue operates solely on the time, energy, and dedication of our generous volunteers. In fact, Kitten Rescue couldn’t survive without the help of our volunteers! We have many volunteer opportunities and ways you can get involved. Training can be provided. If you have experience in any of the below areas — or would like to gain experience — we want you on our Kitten Rescue team!

 

If you would like to become a Kitten Rescue volunteer, take a moment to review our general opportunities and the Sanctuary-specific opportunities, and then fill out an application form below.

General Volunteer Opportunities

The KR Sanctuary

Help care for the cats who live at the Sanctuary! A short orientation session will be provided for all new volunteers.

Kitten Nursery

Help us care for “bottle babies” and tiny orphaned kittens until they are ready for weaning. An orientation will be provided.

Pet Store Enclosures

KR manages pet adoption enclosures at various pet stores across LA. Help feed and care for the cats, and play with them!

Adoption Events

Help at our weekend adoption events, socialize with the cats and speak to potential adopters and the general public.

Transportation

Got wheels? We always need help transporting cats to and from adoption events and vet appointments.

Parties & Events

KR hosts parties, larger-scale adoption events and fundraisers throughout the year. Help us plan, organize and host the big events.

Fundraising

Help us raise money for Kitten Rescue! Every dollar we raise keeps our cats healthy and allows us to save more animals.

Online Assistance

Some fosters do not have a computer. Help write bios of foster cats to post online and field emails from any potential adopters.

The KR Sanctuary Opportunities

With the Animals

Take a weekly shift to help care for the cats. Refresh water bowls, brush cats to keep them looking their best for adoptions, clean cages or litter boxes (a glamorous job!), or do laundry. Shuttle cats to vet visits. Be a Cat Cuddler and help socialize cats.

In the Office

Help out behind-the-scenes answering phone calls and emails, processing paperwork and doing data entry. Create posters, flyers and ads that get the word out. Snap cute photos and write clever bios for Sanctuary cats up for adoption.

In the Community

Become an Adoption Counselor to find FURever homes for our kitties. Spread the word about the Sanctuary to new volunteers. Prepare cats and supplies for adoption events, and help with cat transportation to events and appointments.

If you have specific questions or want more information, you may email our Volunteer Coordinator or stop by any weekly adoption event.
