Every person can help – any amount of time is a blessing
Do you have a few hours a week or even a few hours a month? Are you looking for a worthy cause where you can spend that time? Whether you are married or single, want a family project or an individual endeavor, there is something for everyone to do to help the animals at Cat Matchers!
Helping in animal rescue involves more than fostering and working adoptions, even though these are the most obvious needs. Use your unique talents to help make a big difference in the lives of the animals in our care.
At Cat Matchers, we try to match a volunteer’s strengths, likes, and time availability to the needs of our organization.
There are many diverse ways to get involved. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, please click here to download a printable version of the Volunteer Application.
Currently, we have the greatest need in the following areas:
- Fostering: This is by far the greatest need with the biggest time commitment; however, it is also one of the most rewarding. We need homes where our adoptable cats can stay until they are either ready for adoption or they have found a home. We have all types of cats: adults, moms with nursing kittens, kittens too young to be adopted, bottle-fed kittens and sick cats/kittens. We will supply any needed medications and vet care and we also provide food and litter if needed. (download packet)
- Mobile Adoptions: This involves helping with adoptions at various locations. Tasks include setting up, talking with potential adopters, TLC with cats/kittens, completing adoption paperwork, and cleanup/break down. There are mobile adoption events weekly and they generally last about 4 hours. Shorter shifts are available.
- Adoption Center Care: Volunteers are needed to take care of the cats in the cages at our adoption locations at local Petco and Petsmart stores. We need people to check on the cats daily, so if you have some time once a week or so, then this is the perfect thing for you. Responsibilities include filling food and water, scooping litter boxes and general cage clean up. A little TLC for the cats is welcome too!
- PR: This involves newsletters, newspaper special adoption pages, local magazines, yahoo group and any other way to get our name out there to get our cats adopted. Most of this can be done from your home.
