Love cats and kittens and want to spend time petting, playing and hanging out with them - and helping them find loving homes at the same time? This could be the right opportunity for you!
We want our cats to have the best experience possible while they are at the shelter! Volunteers provide cat care (food and water, clean litter boxes, do laundry) and also provide enrichment activities for specific cats depending on their needs (socialization, play, petting), and keep notes on cats' preferences, behaviors and progress.
Shifts are 2 hours around lunchtime and in the late afternoon, Monday though Sunday, and we ask that you sign up for at least two shifts per month. We run orientations twice per month where we'll give you all the training our need. Note: you will be asked to complete the Shelter Fear Free online training (approx. 6 hours) within 2 months of joining the team.

About Nine Lives Foundation
3137 Jefferson Ave, Redwood City, CA 94062, US
Nine Lives Foundation proudly provides lifelines for at-risk cats and kittens and affordable, compassionate care for our feline friends and the people who love them. Let’s save lives together!
Nine Lives Foundation is a not-for-profit, no-kill shelter for cats and kittens. We rescue at risk cats and kittens, provide them with medical care, and find them loving adoptive homes.
We adopted out 601 cats and kittens in 2022! We also run a low-cost spay/neuter clinic for feral cats, members of the community, and partner rescue organizations - in 2022 we spayed/neutered 3,425 cats and kittens!
We have two locations in Redwood city: our medical clinic at 3137 Jefferson Avenue and our Adoption Center at 3106 Rolison Road. We invite you to visit our clinic and adoption center to see how your volunteering makes a difference in the lives of so many cats and kittens.
Make a difference in your community by helping the cats and kittens in our care. Every volunteer hour helps!
Our volunteers are a driving force behind Nine Lives Foundation. Without their dedication, we would not be able to give so many kitties the care they deserve. Opportunities for volunteers include working in our adoption center and clinic, fostering, cat care and enrichment, transport, fundraising events & community outreach, technical support, administrative help, and more!
