Cat Adoption Team volunteers don’t just love cats, they put their love of cats into action.
Over 450 volunteers belong to a CAT community that works every day to help homeless cats and kittens and end needless feline euthanasia.
CAT volunteers come from diverse backgrounds and contribute their time, skills, and talents in areas as varied as socializing cats one-on-one to raising awareness at outreach events. They are adolescents, senior citizens, and all ages in between. They make new friends, learn new skills, and are an essential component to CAT’s ability to save lives.
“Nothing makes me happier than giving a cat a chance, and meeting other cat lovers with the same goal.” Tanya S., Volunteer
“Volunteering for CAT is the most rewarding experience I’ve had. I always leave the shelter after volunteering with a huge smile on my face. I highly recommend volunteering to anyone!” Lynn H., Volunteer
Apply to be a CAT Volunteer today. Please note that CAT staff will get back to you as soon as possible, but this may take as long as a week. Applicants whose interests and schedule match current openings are invited to attend a Volunteer Orientation, typically held on three weekend days per month (occasionally weekday evening orientations are offered).
CAT’s volunteer program does not accept court-ordered community service; however, there are some opportunities to fulfill court-ordered community service at the shelter; please call the shelter at (503) 925-8903 for more information.
