Each year, hundreds of kittens and mom cats from the DeKalb County community and surrounding area are found stray, abandoned or homeless. Kitten season is the time of year when cats give birth, flooding animal shelters and rescue groups across the nation with homeless litters. In 2016, Tails Humane Society took in and cared for over 500 stray kittens from April-October.

We are currently recruiting Volunteers to help us care for the kittens and mom cats re-entering the shelter from foster homes with their moms.

PURPOSE OF POSITION: To properly clean and set up cat/kitten cages/rooms and provide proper daily requirements, including food, toys and bedding.

EXPECTATIONS: Cat Care Volunteer must be able to volunteer mornings (between 7AM-9AM or 9AM-11AM) before Tails opens to the public when the cleaning and feeding activities are completed. Currently, we are recruiting for weekday mornings.

Volunteers can assist in this role at Tails beginning at age 16.
