Volunteers Help Cats Find Loving Homes

Forgotten Cats houses 6 adoptable cats/kittens at Pet Supplies Plus at any given time. We need dependable volunteers to commit to at least one 2-hour shift each week to help us care for and socialize the cats.

Available shifts include 9-11am, mid-day, and 7-9pm, but times can be flexible. Weekend "closers" are especially needed!

Duties include scooping litter, replenishing food & water, letting the cats out to play in a secure area, and providing lots of TLC.

Volunteers need to have basic people skills in order to interact with members of the public who may wish to meet the cats and ask questions about them. We want to be helpful and to encourage folks to adopt our wonderful cats.

We have a GREAT group of regular volunteers who communicate daily via email and provide each other with updates on the cats. Won't you consider joining our team?

Volunteers under 18 would have to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

About Forgotten Cats

Location:

PMB 422, 4023 Kennett Pike, Greenville, DE 19807, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to humanely reduce the homeless and unwanted cat population through Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR). Forgotten Cats finds homes for socialized cats through two PetSmart Adoption Centers in Delaware and three in Pennsylvania. We sterilize an average of 1000 cats in our two medical clinics and adopt out 80-100 socialized cats each month.

Description

By working with colony caretakers throughout Pennsylania, Delaware, and New Jersey, Forgotten Cats will trap, neuter, and return an entire colony, sterilizing and vaccinating all cats and providing medical treatment when necessary. Tame cats and kittens are transferred into our foster care system until properly socialized and eventually adopted into loving homes.

Most rescue groups' efforts are limited to finding homes for homeless cats, but the number of homeless cats and kittens born each day far exceed the number of homes available. That's why Forgotten Cats works to solve the unwanted cat probelm permanently and humanely. We also offer low-cost spay/neuter services and vaccinations to the general public, and provide education about spaying and neutering and the pet overpopulation problem.
