About

Match-Maker Volunteer
Purrfect Pals


Purrfect Pals provides a no-kill sanctuary, foster support, hospice care and adoption services for homeless cats. Purrfect Pals works to end overpopulation through humane education, spay/neuter programs, and permanent placement in quality homes. Founded in 1988, Purrfect Pals was originally a boarding facility for cats. Today the sanctuary is home to more than 150 cats. The sanctuary prides itself in providing space for cats with leukemia, cats with FIV, and cats with special medical and behavioral issues. The organization also adopts on average 2,000+ cats a year and provides medical care onsite.

Purrfect Pals is committed to finding homes for all of our animals. With the construction of our new facility in Arlington we are looking for active volunteers who are interested in helping match potential adopters with cats in our sanctuary. Our volunteer match makers will also be trained to help observe and record the unique behaviors and personality traits of our adoptable cats to help better inform potential adopters.
