If you would like to get involved there are several ways that you can help us and the cats in our care. The list below provides choices and information that will help you decide what type of help you would like to give. Even the smallest gift is incredibly appreciated both by the volunteers and our large family of cats.

Donations to the Shelter are tax-deductible.
Volunteers are always needed in all aspects of shelter operations.
Caregivers - to handle the daily cleaning and feeding and spend some time socializing the cats. Two shifts daily are necessary to keep the animals properly maintained.
Adoption Counselors - to assist prospective qualified adopters select a pet who meets the needs of the family, complete the necessary paperwork and follow up to be sure the adoption is working for both the family and the animal. You will be paired with an experienced counselor and this requires a long-term commitment.
Feral Socializing - is an extremely important part of our work. Working with these special animals is a labor of love and requires dedication and patience. We have never yet found a cat who with time and commitment could not be socialized. This part of the program is not for everybody, but is deeply rewarding to those involved.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities please call the shelter at (508) 473-7008.
