Keep the kids out of trouble! Become a Truancy Officer.

Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats helps to end the proliferation of cats being born on the streets of LA by providing free Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) services throughout LA city. With TNR - the humane trapping of feral cats - cats are also seen by a vet to have their medical needs addressed before being returned to their colony caretaker. We work with community partners and colony caretakers who help provide for and watch over the street cats. Kittens trapped receive a full ride scholarship to our Charm School, where they receive medical care and are socialized to be adopted out to life long loving homes.

We need volunteers to assist on a flexible schedule, usually 1-2 times a month. Most trapping is done on the Thursdays, but a TNR Patrol is a three-day adventure - day one we trap, day two is vet care, day three is the return to outdoor home & loving colony caretaker.

Volunteers are needed Thursday through Saturday, occasionally Sundays. Greatest need is for assistance Thursday & Friday mornings, and Fridays after lunch. This is a great way to truly help stop the growing problem of homeless animals by committing just a few hours a month - or as many as you like - to the problem of cat overpopulation! You will receive full training, and our truancy officers work in small groups focused on the health and safety of the team as well as the cats we trap.

Join our TNR team today and help us create a humane city.
