COVID-19 - we have temporarily suspended operation of our adoption center to avoid people crowding around to meet the cats, and to keep our volunteers and our cats safe. Cat lovers - For Animals Inc. is looking for reliable volunteers who love cats and have about 1 hour of free time in the morning and/or evening to take care of the kitties at our Adoption Center inside NYC Pet. All you need to do is give food, water, clean cages and spend some time with the cats. If it sounds like something you would like to do, please contact Jean at email@example.com for additional information. We will arrange an orientation for you to do a shift with an experienced volunteer so you can learn our procedures, see where we keep our supplies, and learn about our organization.
Great for individuals & families. We welcome young people (under 18) who volunteer with one (or both) of their parents.
We have found #forever homes for hundreds of cats through this small adoption center. When one cat is adopted into a loving home, we have room to take in another., so you are truly saving lives when you volunteer with us. Shift duration is roughly an hour. It might be a little more or less depending on how many cats are at the Adoption Center and how messy they are. We need a volunteer every morning when the store opens and every evening roughly two hours before the store closes:
The vision of For Animals is a New York City metropolitan area in which: the everyday decisions and actions of society at large reflect and promote all animals’ right to a safe and healthy life. Trap-Neuter-Return resources are widely accessible and actively utilized by community members in all five boroughs. the importance of spaying/neutering companion animals and the humane treatment of every animal are core values upheld by all citizens of the city. adopting companion animals from no-kill shelters is considered the norm among current and prospective pet owners. public-intake shelters no longer euthanize healthy or treatable animals for want of funds or living space. no companion animal is ever born into, nor abandoned to, homelessness for any reason.
For Animals is dedicated to eliminating companion animal homelessness, engaging our larger community as vital and active participants in this shared social and ethical responsibility, and providing that community with the resources and education necessary to achieve these goals together.
We'll work with your schedule.
