The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
StreetCats is an all volunteer non profit organization that houses adult cats that have been abandoned or lost their homes. We care for up to 15 cats at one time in our facility until they are adopted. There are two shifts Tuesday-Saturday from 9:30 until 1 and from 1-5. We also have a Sunday morning shift for up to 1 1/2 hours and the start time depends on who is volunteering. All the shifts require cleaning of litter boxes, cleaning cages, mopping floors, doing laundry, etc. but when the work is done you have plenty of time to pet and comb the kitties and to play with them until their forever owner comes along. We also have merchandise for sale and volunteers get 10% off our already great prices. We have set schedules for 1-2 months in advance. Volunteers usually are scheduled twice a month.
