About

Kitty Caravan Cat Transporter Volunteer

St. Sophia’s Forgotten Felines is looking for a few good transporters to help us get our cats and kittens to their veterinary appointments, to our pet stores, and to their fosters.

WE NEED PEOPLE WHO:

  • Are 18 years old, or older
  • Have their own vehicle for transport
  • Have a valid driver’s license
  • Have a clean driving record
  • Live within a 25 mile radius of Westmont, IL
  • Are willing to travel within a 25 mile radius of Westmont, IL
  • Capacity to transport up to 15 cats (in carriers!) at a time

WHEN:

  • Scheduled Transports (shifts)
    The following times are when we have scheduled transports. We are not expecting the same transporter to fill every single time slot, it’s just not feasible. You can sign up for as many shifts as you want, but to maintain volunteer status, you’d need to do at least one shift a month)

    • Tuesday Morning Drop-Off to SPAY IL (Lisle)
      Meet in Addison or Westmont to pick up the cats/kittens (around 7am)
      8am drop off time @ SPAY IL
    • Tuesday Evening Pick-Up from SPAY IL (Lisle)
      4:30pm pick up time
      Drop off in Addison or Westmont
    • AD HOC Transports
      Sometimes fosters are unable to get their cats/kittens to the vet, to a store, or to another foster on their own (lack of transport, scheduling conflicts). We need drivers who can jump in and help with transporting.

      • Our 32 fosters live all over the Chicagoland Area
      • We have 4 pet store locations and 1 shelter location
      • We have 3 veterinary clinics we use
      • Think of all of the possible transport combinations!!!
