Caring Friends Cat Rescue is a non-profit, fully volunteer run cat rescue; the Tustin MarketplacePetSmart sponsors us by housing a few of our cats and hosting adoption events for us every weekend. All the food and supplies are handled by PetSmart but we manage and care for the cats. Our regular volunteers are tasked with cleaning the kennels, playing with the cats, socializing the cats, feeding, and watching over the health and safety of the cats. We have volunteers who come in seven days a week, once in the morning (between 7 am to 10 am) and once in the evening (between 4 pm to 7 pm) to clean the kennels, feed and play with the cats. Shifts take approximately 2.5 to 3 hours to complete. We currently have several shifts open and also need fill-in volunteers to cover shifts when other volunteers go on vacation, get sick, etc. You can take on a weekly or bi-weekly shift or just fill-in when needed. Volunteers must be at least 18 yrs of age or be accompanied by an adult.
If you are interested please provide a phone number in addition to an email address. Often times our emails to interested volunteers go into their spam folder and are never seen or answered. Thank you.
Our rescue's mission is to rescue and rehabilitate as many abandoned and neglected cats as we can each year. Through spaying, neutering, foster care and finding permanent homes for cats and kittens. This includes vetting, feeding and housing them until we are able to find permanent homes.
We also help with feral cats through our TNR and feeding program as well as rehabilitation of the kittens, enabling them to be adopted into homes.
We hold adoption events every Saturday from 1pm to 5pm, some Sundays (call for hours) and may be available by appointment. Our adoption site is inside Petsmart in the Tustin Marketplace, right off the 5 freeway at Tustin Ranch Road and El Camino Real.
We require an adoption application, contract and adoption donation for all cats and kittens. All cats and kittens must be transported from the adoption site in an enclosed carrier. Adoption fees are payable via check or cash only at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
