I personally love cats, I think what you guys are doing is great and I love how clean the facility looks and how happy the cats seem.

I have been wanting to volunteer somewhere that involves caring for animals for a very long time, I love animals of all types and hopefully if I do get the opportunity to volunteer here, I can tell my friends or colleagues what a great experience I had and how easy it was to sign up for it. I will most likely be volunteering with my 18 year old sister since I am only 15, in other words, she can also recommend this organization to her friends or colleagues.

I have been a foster home for over thirty cats and kittens for 13th St. Cat Rescue over the last 2+ years. Yes, I fall in love with every cat/kitten I house but I also feel great joy when they find a forever home. My input directly affects the prospective adoption. I get to love kitties until they are adopted. It is a great way to get your kitten fix, love em, find them a home, then get some more. I rarely have a kitty for longer than a couple of months and receive great support from the group concerning any questions I might have. Please consider being a foster home for a kitty. Try it once and you might become hooked!

There was a feral cat population where I worked. These folks came out, trapped, neutered and released the entire colony free of charge and were wonderful to work with. I highly recommend them.
