Felines For Adoption Cat Rescue aka "Saving Fancy Cats" is an all cat rescue organization seeking cat loving individuals to assist us with our cattery! This is an opportunity available to assist us with the care of our cats during their feeding/cleaning visits. Our volunteers visit during 1 of 3 time frames 7 days a week. We ask that each volunteer choose a specific day/time frame available. Visits can be from 1-7 days per week and we ask volunteers keep the same day/visit time. We cannot allow for drop in visits since we need to have confirmed visitations to insure our cats are fed and cared for at specific time frames. Mornings - 8-9:30 AM Midday - 12-1:30 PM Evenings - 5-6:30 PM **To get started please complete our online adoption application. We cannot consider anyone for volunteering without a submitted application! https://savingfancycats.org/volunteer Volunteers must be 21 and over- NO Exceptions! About the "Cattery Shelter Helper" As a shelter helper, you would be responsible for arriving to our cattery by the designated start time. The visit would require you to manage the required activities of; feeding, cleaning, overseeing the health and wellbeing of each cat, and occasionally grooming and/or medicating cats. All volunteers have the ability to stay longer to play and engage with the cats, which we highly encourage. Experience with cats or dogs in a shelter or rescue environment is preferred but not required. You will be trained. This role requires physical capabilities including the ability to bend, reach, ladder use, heavy/deep cleaning, and the ability to lift up to 30 lbs (largest bag of litter/food) This position is NOT available for corporate, school, or assigned community service activities. We do not have space for more than one volunteer per visit. About us: FFACR is a cat rescue organization. We are a all volunteer non-profit located in northern NJ. We have a small cattery that holds our cats awaiting adoption since foster homes are difficult to find. Therefore the cattery holds most of the rescue's cats while they await adoption. This number can range between 8-12 cats who are roaming freely within the cattery. There are also cats located in individual cat enclosures who are in need of specialized attention, medication, etc. Training: We hold orientation meetings virtually in order for potential volunteers to better understand the shelter helper role. If you are assigned a shift, there will in-person training for at least 3-4 visits, as well as the shadowing of our current volunteers. Most volunteers would then attend to their visits independently. Application: All volunteers MUST complete our volunteer application which will include a reference and background check. Apply today and join our great group of cat loving volunteers! https://savingfancycats.org/volunteer Thank you!

We are in need of foster homes for cats awaiting adoption. Although we do have a cattery available where cats can stay while they are awaiting adoption, we prefer our cats to be in a home environment. Cat's do best when they are able to roam freely where they feel safe and secure. We also have cats that do not like other cats, and this poses a problem for placing them into a cattery with multiple cats. If you decide to foster for our rescue you are not financially responsible for the cat(s) unless you would like to provide food and litter. All veterinary bills are managed by the rescue organization while the cat is in foster care. Experience with cats is preferred but not required. Your home should have a room for the foster cat to start the foster process in. A small bedroom, bathroom or laundry room will do fine. This is especially important if you have other cats or pets in the home. This starter room allows the foster cat to adjust to your home, the sounds, the smells, and easily get to know you. It will also allow you to introduce your foster cat to your other pets in the home, slowly, which is critical to their ability to get along later. If you do NOT have a room to place a foster cat into, we can provide you with an extra large dog crate, which will also work for the purposes mentioned above. In order to be considered please complete our adoption application found online: https://savingfancycats.org/volunteer We will contact you following the receipt of your application to set up a virtual orientation to review the process of fostering, and the cats we need to place into foster care. We prefer our foster homes be less than 50 miles from our main location, Mahwah, NJ.
