Volunteers with Cat

Volunteers are needed to help care for Fancy Cats Rescue cats residing at Chico's Natural Pet Market in Falls Church, VA.

  • What: Cleaning cages and monitoring cat health and behavior. Providing fresh food and water and toys and bedding as needed. And most importantly some much needed love, attention, and stimulation!
  • Where: Chico's Natural Pet Market in Falls Church, VA.
  • How: Cat caregivers can work alone or in teams, which may be beneficial in some situations as time flies when you're having fun with the kitties! You can work alone or with another volunteer to take care of the kitties
  • When: Shifts take place in the mornings and evenings. Some volunteers choose to help more than once a week, on a weekly basis, every two weeks, once a month, or some other regular schedule. We are always in need of help.
  • Time Needed: Time involved depends on the number of cats and the amount of time you want to spend with them. We are grateful for any amount of time you can offer, as long as it is consistent. The Adoption Center takes 1-3 hours to care for 16 cats. (People often stop by to ask about our cats).

Mission Statement

Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded in 1997 and is a completely volunteer run non-profit, no-kill cat rescue. Our mission is to end needless euthanasia at shelters in the National Capital area by rescuing and finding suitable lifetime homes for our cats, promoting spaying and neutering, and educating the public on responsible pet ownership.


Fancy Cats Rescue Team is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The Fancy Cats Rescue Team is a passionate leader in the animal rescue community with over 20 years experience. Founded in August 1997 by Cathy Awad, Fancy Cats now has three PetSmart Adoption Centers, an adoption center at Chico's Pet Depot and 100+ volunteers.

We provide adoption, rescue and education services by finding suitable lifetime homes for our cats, rescuing cats on death row at local shelters and educating the public on responsible pet ownership. We aspire to offer in-house spay and neuter services.

We live by our core values of integrity in all our dealings; compassion for all life; respect for our cats, our constituents and each other; and teamwork. We are responsive to our donors, adopters, volunteers and the public. Our volunteers and staff are recognized for their responsibility, dedication, knowledge and helpful service.

We provide these services for cats that would otherwise be euthanized, potential adopters, donors, local animal shelters, and our community.



We'll work with your schedule.
