Volunteers make all the difference in the lives of our cats and in the smooth running of our shelter and Catfe Lounge! We need volunteers for a variety of tasks, including:

  • Cleaning and preparing the Catfe Lounge before opening hours
  • Assisting at the Catfe Lounge during working hours. Includes greeting visitors, caring for the Catfe, and ensuring the care of cats and kittens.
