To provide a No-Kill shelter and compassionate care for homeless cats in Tucson, AZ. To adopt shelter cats to good homes. To promote Trap, Neuter and Release (TNR) for feral cats, and to educate the public regarding spay/neuter and responsible pet ownership.
Pawsitively Cats provides care for over 200 homeless cats in the Tucson area. We are largely volunteer-based.
Very simply, this no-kill organization saves cats. A tiny, dedicated group of cat lovers are working very hard to make life better for all needy cats. The more volunteers there are the more cats can be saved. Just a few hours a week fostering, working at the shelter, or even fundraising, could mean the difference between life and death for an animal. The reward for volunteering is getting to pet lots of cuddly, purring, cats. I love the work this organization does.
If you really want to make a difference in your community and if you feel deeply about animal welfare then this is a terrific organization to get involved with. There are many different kinds of volunteer activities that can fit into just about any kind of schedule. You will undoubtedly receive more than you give because that is how volunteering works. The purrs of gratitude and the connections you make with like minded, compassionate people just like yourself are deeply and profoundly rewarding.
If you love cats, then you will love this volunteer job! The people you work with are fantastic and appreciate everything you do. Besides helping the kitties--you will feel good about what you are doing. The kitties will appreciate you too!
