Homeless To Forever Foundation

Logo

We are a small, all-volunteer, foster based organization. We are professionals, retirees, and students. We do this charity from the heart. Please do not inquire if you are not going to respond to our reply or not show up to a mutually scheduled volunteer task.
Adoption fairs are most Saturdays from 12:30 to about 4:30. We need help with:
set-up
close-down
walking or sitting or holding small dogs
helping with the cats...placing from/to their carriers to their cages, brushing, soothing them, petting them.
talking with interested people from the public
keeping the cats and dogs safe
helping with a number of miscellaneous tasks.
we sell candy at the fairs, so we can use help with attracting people to buy candy

We need ADULT volunteers and you can be anyone... you can be retired and would simply walk about talking with people or keeping children from poking the cats or sitting by the cages or dog xpen, and so forth. You can be someone who will be very active and will be stacking our cages during close-up and carrying our cat carriers from/to the car, etc. You can come with friends or relatives.

If you wish to have children or minors help, they can come as long as you are present the entire time with them.

You can come one time or many times or designated times of the month. You can come for a brief time or the entire time.

We need adult volunteers who are not allergic to cats and dogs and who will be friendly. We are looking for adult volunteers who can be drama-free and show passion for helping animals with maturity and positivity.

Mission Statement

We are a non profit animal rescue foundation, our primary aim is to provide rescue and forever home placement of animals from the Southern California shelter systems. We aim to provide last minute rescue to critters and other animals that have been scheduled for euthanasia and have run out of time in securing help from local animal rescue organizations.

Our secondary goal is to provide the same quality of rescue and placement for animals abandoned or in need of being re-homed by private individuals with the goal of preventing these creatures from otherwise entering the shelter system, while also providing limited and minimal support to selected private individuals in need of emergency medical and daily living care for their animals with the goal of preventing these creatures from being surrendered to the shelter system.

Description

We save doggies, kitties, critters and other animals from dying in the shelters, which means we also try to help some creatures, as best we can, from going to the shelters in the first place. We care for our animals while they stay in foster homes throughout the LA County and Valley areas. We have multiple adoption fairs and we house some of our cats at Petsmart in Monrovia, CA.
