Interested in helping community cats (aka free-roaming, stray or feral cats) in your area?
A partnership between Best Friends Animal Society, Maddie's Fund, Palm Springs Animal Shelter and the Coachella Valley Animal Campus; the Coachella Community Cats Project humanely and effectively reduces the number of cats living on our streets.
You can put your talents to work in the following ways:
Community cat trapper and transporter
Be a super sleuth. We need people to trap community cats in specific areas with Best Friends staff, and to accompany staff in a project van to and from clinics, holding areas and animal shelters, and back to the trap location. You can also work independently.
Don't have much time to spare but still want to help? You can get involved by volunteering to help return fixed cats to their original location. You’ll use your own vehicle to pick up them from the shelter, and take them back to their colony to be released. Each trip only takes about an hour and a half or less.
Data entry assistant
If attention to detail is your strong suit, we’d welcome your assistance with entering program data into a spreadsheet. This position can be remote once you are fully trained. Training must happen on-site.
Our program is based in the Coachella Valley Animal Campus but other trapping and transport locations vary often. Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering or learning more.
