ORGANIZATION: Northern Colorado Friends of Ferals

  • 60 people are interested

Northern Colorado Friends of Ferals (NCFF) has spayed, neutered and vaccinated more than 12,000 homeless cats in northern Colorado, potentially preventing thousands of future kittens from being euthanized in our shelters or struggling to survive outdoors.

Stray and feral cats are humanely trapped and transported to our Fort Collins clinic for surgery, treatment and recovery. We are looking for volunteers to help us the day before the clinics and the day after.

Trappers -One Saturday per month, you will travel to outdoor cat colonies, set humane traps with bait, retrieve traps as soon as cats are inside them, and transport them to our holding area in Fort Collins to await surgery the following day. Traps are always covered and they are never left unattended. Trapping can frequently require evening or after-dark work and is always done in pairs.

Trap Cleaners - One Monday afternoon per month, you will clean and re-stack traps from the clinic the day before. You could be outside in the glorious sunshine and clean air to do this job or inside if it's too hot or cold!

Transporters - Volunteers with moderately large vehicles transport cats back to their colonies on the Monday morning after a clinic. NCFF can reimburse you for gas or you can donate the gas and deduct the mileage on your income tax return, whichever you prefer.

Clinic Cleaners - Volunteers are needed to clean the clinic the day after surgery, one Monday morning a month. This involves sweeping and mopping floors and taking out trash. NCFF provides supplies. Time required is 1-2 hours.

Laundry - We need someone to pick up and wash laundry from clinics (towels and surgical drapes mostly).

Cheyenne - With the extremely high euthanasia rate for stray & feral cats in the Cheyenne shelter, we are looking for a contact person who lives in or near Cheyenne who is willing to actively coordinate with us and Cheyenne locals to arrange to trap & "fix" these cats. We have the infrastructure; we just need a serious liaison to work with.

NCFF always needs volunteers between clinics too! If you have particular skills in Fundraising, Social Media, Newsletters, or Promotion, please contact Leslie at sidwiggy7717@gmail.com.

Thank you for looking! We hope you'll consider volunteering with us.
