FLATBUSH CATS BACKGROUND:

Flatbush Cats is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit working to end the cat overpopulation crisis in Brooklyn.

  • Participate in decision process with leadership and foster caregivers
  • Work with Foster Program and Community Cats Program Managers to move cats through the programs efficiently and help identify any roadblocks

You will be enabling the rescue of friendly cats (by our Community Cats team) from the streets into adoptive homes! This is an opportunity to use your love for both animals and people to help Flatbush Cats’ mission of reducing the outdoor cat population in Brooklyn. Gain valuable skills and experience, and volunteer with a dedicated team of animal lovers.
