Volunteering is one way to stand out from the crowd and make change happen!

Cat Tales is seeking individuals to work with us on a volunteer basis. Whether you have 1 hour or 40 hours per week, we offer a variety of opportunities to fit your schedule and talents. You’re just one step away from making your life and the lives of our homeless cats and kittens – EXTRAORDINARY!

Here are some ways that you can volunteer:


Foster a cat/kitten in your home
Direct animal care at the shelter – 3 hour minimum per week commitment (includes feeding/cleaning/laundry/socializing the cats and kittens)
Feed feral colonies
Sponsor a cat
Assist in transporting cats to vets
Act as a plumber, electrician, or carpenter
Assist with adoption appointments
Correspond with donors
Help at a fundraiser
Return phone calls and answer cat-related questions
Become an animal community advocate

Volunteers must be 15 years or older to help during a shelter shift.  Volunteers younger than 15 can help by conducting fundraisers at their schools. A tour of the shelter will be provided when you drop off your donations.

If you are interested in volunteering directly with the cats at the shelter, assist with feral colonies, foster a cat in your home, or transport cats to veterinary appointments, please complete this application:


We have many other opportunities to volunteer outside of working directly with the cats. To view a complete list of managerial or clerical volunteer options, please click on the application below:
