Help cats find new forever homes at our weekly adoption events! New Beginnings Cat Rescue is a non-profit organization that rescues cats and kittens from local shelters when they are running out of time. We hold adoption events at the Garland PetSmart every Saturday and Sunday.
Volunteer 5+ hours one or more Saturdays/Sundays each month to assist at adoptions. Duties involve setting up tables, assembling cages, maintaining cages throughout the day, playing with the cats, and educating the public about the importance of spay/neuter. Adoptions are held every Saturday from 11am to 4pm and Sunday from 12pm to 4pm, but volunteers arrive 30 minutes early to set up and stay 30 minutes after to clean up.
During the event, Counselors interview each potential adopter to help them find the right cat for their lifestyle/family. If the potential adopter meets all of the adoption requirements, the counselor guides the adopter in paperwork completion and makes arrangements for the cat to be taken home. Training is required for this position and you will work with a more experienced adoption counselor until you are comfortable working alone. Adoption Counselors also maintain the cages throughout the shift and play with the cats during slow times.
If you live in the Garland or DFW area and would like to help with this rewarding task, please consider volunteering with New Beginnings Cat Rescue.

With respect and compassion for all cats, New Beginnings Cat Rescue promotes lifelong relationships between people and animals, providing foster care for each precious life until adopted into a good home as an indoor cat. Our mission is to work with the public, other rescue groups, and animal control to save homeless cats in our community.
New Beginnings Cat Rescue (NBCR) is a non-profit, volunteer-only cat rescue group. We do not have a shelter, but instead place our cats waiting for a space in our adoption center with loving foster families who care for them and see to their health needs when necessary. Sick or weak cats and mothers with nursing kittens are always placed with foster families until the kittens or cats are ready for adoption.
We are fortunate to be able to use the adoption center at the Garland, Texas PetSmart at Hwy 190 and N. Garland Avenue. Our volunteers have been caring for and adopting out cats in the PetSmart since July 2004. In 2006, we adopted out 357 cats to loving homes.
