Volunteers are Priceless!

  Volunteering is a very rewarding experience.  At the shelter you help to get abused and homeless cats a loving home, while you brush up on your cleaning skills.  You will get to meet some really great people and cats.  Just giving a few hours makes all the difference.

  Help is needed in a number of areas;

  • Shelter roster

  • Administration

  • Fostering

  • Fundraising

  • Shelter maintenance

  • Pet placement

  • Provision co-ordination


Please note: Cat shelter roster duties include cage cleaning, litter box maintenance, feeding, general shelter cleaning, laundry, grooming and medicating (when necessary) and of course, socialising the cats and kittens.

Volunteer requirements

  • All volunteers should have a current tetanus vaccine.

  • All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. Volunteers between the ages of 13 and 16 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

  • Volunteers must enjoy direct contact with cats and have some experience in handling them.
