VOLUNTEER AS A FOSTER, SAVE A CAT'S LIFE!

We are in need of responsible volunteers who are able to help us feed a few feral cat colonies located throughout Rockland County, NY including locations in Spring Valley, Nanuet and Pomona, New York. The right volunteer would have the ability to visit one or more of our feeding areas 1-7 days per week. You can choose which day(s) of the week you want to volunteer. Volunteers are able to swap their day(s) with other volunteers during vacation or illness to insure the cats are always fed.

The time of day that you would visit the colony is flexible, however, we prefer that volunteers arrive in the early morning and in the early evening hours because feral outdoor cats usually eat at dusk and at dawn.

As a colony feeder/caretaker you would also be able to assist us with the TNR process. TNR is; T= trap, N=neuter and the R= return of the cats following their alter surgery. This process helps to maintain the cat population and prevents further births of litters, leading to crowding at local shelters. Once you sign up to volunteer as a feeder/caretaker, you will be able to attend a training orientation with a current volunteer who you can work with until you are ready to visit the feeding area on your own.


A visit will usually last 30-45 minutes and requires just your time and kindness to these kitties! All cat food is provided for you.

Thank you!
