Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Cats Cradle Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and finding loving homes for unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens. All monies collected by CCR are applied to the feeding, medical care and neutering of current and future cats & kittens in our program. All of the animals being adopted today are rescued animals. Many are abandoned and their history is unknown. We have taken care of their immediate needs and believe them to be healthy and capable of becoming integral parts of a new, loving family. The felines taken into CCR are fostered in volunteer homes where they are loved and nurtured. Very young kittens without a mother are bottle fed by specific volunteers trained in their care. When they become affectionate, loving and self-sufficient, they are placed up for adoption.
- Kittens are given a series of three FVRCP vaccines and adult cats are given a booster.
- All animals are spayed or neutered in accordance with California state law.
- All cats are tested for Feline Leukemia/FIV or kittens have had a sibling or mother cat tested.
- All cats are given a Micro-chip ID prior to going into their new homes.
- All cats are given a safety collar and ID tag with a tag number unique to them.
- All cats are treated for fleas and tape-worms and some have been treated for other medical conditions.
Volunteers with CCR have had success with taming feral kittens that are caught and handled within a very small window of time. Therefore CCR will take feral kittens in after an assessment is done.
However, Cats Cradle Rescue is not set up to take in adult feral (wild stray) cats but will help with the trapping and neutering of these animals. This must be done in accordance with the Trap, Neuter and Release (TNR) method. This means that after spaying or neutering, the animal must be able to be re-released in the area it was trapped. CCR does not condone and will NOT facilitate trapping solely for euthanasia.
