We are always looking for cat-loving volunteers willing to give a minimum of two hours per week and make a long-term commitment to support our mission of improving the lives of abused, abandoned, feral, stray, and injured cats.

Volunteers have opportunities to help at outreach events, including informational table displays. Educational materials will be provided by Shadow Cats. Any additional display items or handout material must be approved prior to the event.
