Little Portugal route (feeder(s) needed for Thursday, Friday or Saturday.)

Help feed several groups of community cats by the Alum Rock 101 exit in San Jose. You will need a car to travel the 1 mile route and access 5 different stops, where you will provide food and water and monitor the cats for any changes in health and behavior. We currently care for a total of 28 cats.

The route takes approximately 30 minutes total, depending on how much you care to mingle with the cats. Once the cats get to know you, and you them (each cat has a name), they will welcome you with head butts and leg rubs and allow some pets.

You are asked to send a summary email of how the feeding went within 24 hours of feeding so the group can stay updated. Food is provided for free and is available for pickup from a volunteer’s garage in SJ.

Most feeders have been doing this route for more than 4 years because it is easy, fun and fulfilling!

We recommend starting sometime between 4:30 and 7pm and request a minimum commitment of 4 months. Timing is flexible, but cats like eating around dusk.

Anyone under 18 is required to be accompanied by an adult every time they feed.
