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.
There are many cats at the shelter. Most of them spend all day and night in a crate. We need people to come and sit in the cat room and socialize with the cats. While there, you can pet the cats, brush them, talk with them and hold them on your lap for a while. We have actually found that when we have a regular volunteer spending time with the cats, we see less upper respiratory infections! Spending time with our shelter cats is a great way to volunteer your time. It helps keep our cats happy and healthy while they are in our rescue. Many kitties to simply spend time around people while others may need more socialization before they are ready for adoption. You can come play with them or just sit in a chair and read a book or work on your computer... if they let you:)
