We are always looking for cat loving volunteers to assist with fostering or helping out at our foster cattery!
To get started please complete our online adoption application;
Volunteers must be 21 and over.
Experience with cats preferred but not required
This role requires physical capability
Volunteers need to be able to lift up to 30 lbs (largest bag of food)
This position is NOT available for community service or for college credits.
We are in search of cat loving people, who are willing to volunteer at least once a week to assist us in our rescue's cattery. Our cattery is located in Mahwah, NJ and was been custom built on our director's property in a detached two car garage. The cattery holds most of the rescue's cats while they await adoption. This number can range between 10-20 cats.
The cats housed in our cattery rely on the volunteers for daily visits. Visits include feedings, cleaning up litter boxes, kennel cleanings, folding laundry, organization of supplies, inventory, medicine administration when necessary, and sometimes assisting with the socializing of kittens. Of course there is always time for cuddling, and playing!
The time of day that each volunteer visits is somewhat flexible but we prefer a morning or evening shift since this is when the cats are fed their wet food feedings. The morning shift starts by 9:30 am and the evening shift starts by 5:30 pm. On average our volunteers spend between 1 to 2 hours at their visit.
During COVID-19 we have only one volunteer visiting each day. We hold orientation meetings virtually to start, and there will be a few days of in person training which is held using all the CDC recommended safety guidelines.
Sign up and join our great group of cat loving volunteers!
Please complete our adoption application and we will be in touch to set up an orientation! Thank you!
08:30 AM to 10:30 AM
Our morning shift is flexible, but on average our volunteers arrive by 8:30 am, and stay about 1-1.5 hours.
05:00 PM to 06:30 PM
Our evening shift is flexible, but on average our volunteers arrive by 5:00 pm, and stay about 1-1.5 hours.
