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 as our adoption counselors always work in pairs. 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.
