Quick Fix Volunteers
Alley Cat Advocates
Alley Cat Advocates needs volunteers to support the Quick Fix program! More than 150 spay/neuter appointments are scheduled each week to spay/neuter, vaccinate and provide great medical care to unowned community cats.
Volunteers are needed in these areas:
- Customer service. Volunteers return hotline calls and assist community cat caretakers. Training provided.
- Trap distribution and training. We need five friendly and helpful volunteers every Saturday from 12:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Volunteers greet caretakers, check-in traps and train new caretakers to trap and transport their lucky community cats. Training provided.
- Trapping. Trappers are volunteers who help our most vulnerable cats, those who cannot get veterinary care because their loving caretakers are physically unable to trap and transport. All you need is your own reliable transportation, a handful of hours in just a few days, and a passion for helping animals! Training provided.
- Feeders. Volunteers check-in, discharge, and feed community cats Monday-Thursday nights at 6:30pm.
