Become a Volunteer

The cats need you!  Whether you can help only as your schedule permits or on a regular basis, we look forward to meeting you and sharing with you the good work we do for the cats.

If you are interested in volunteering, please attend a Volunteer Orientation session.  You’ll learn about Trap-Neuter-Return and how you can make a real difference for the cats in our community!
