Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Our organization saves abandoned cats and kittens, providing foster homes for them until they are adopted. Your part would be working at weekend events at our Verona Center. You will greet potential adopters, help maintain a clean, safe environment for the kittens, provide assistance with various cleaning chores such as laundry, dishes, stocking shelves, and so much more. The time spent interacting with these animals and their new families is so rewarding. We are staffed by 100% volunteers who all love what they do. We are open only on weekends and offer various shifts to suit your schedule.
New kittens and cats arrive every week. We always need good foster homes for these cuties. Read the listing for Foster Homes to get more information.
