For the Love of Cats would not exist without our dedicated Volunteers!

Please fill out this application and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

  • Shelter Volunteer: Responsibilities include but are not limited to cleaning litter boxes, cages and shelter areas, washing, medicating, feeding and socializing of cats and kittens. Volunteers are required to commit to at least on shift per week. We request at least 1 week advance notice if you cannot come to the shelter for your shift. Volunteers who are absent without notice for 3 shifts will be required to return their shelter key.
  • There are two main shelter shifts: 8am-9:30am and 5-6:30pm. Please designate the shifts you are available for: morning or afternoon.
  • Foster Care: Responsibilities include the care and feeding of very young kittens that require 24-hour care for 2-6 weeks.
  • Feeding Cat Colonies: Responsibilities include once a day changing/filling of bowls of food and water at a location(s) around the island. Usually takes an hour or so in the early morning or evening.
  • Trapping Kittens and Feral Cats: Responsibilities include baiting and setting out traps at dusk and collecting them at dawn. Trapping is based on sightings-no set schedule.
  • DISCLAIMER As part of becoming a For the Love of Cats volunteer, I understand that cats and kittens can be skittish and bite and scratch. I also understand that there may be bacteria and parasites that are zoonotic (transferable to humans). I agree to abide by all the rules of the shelter and practice good hygiene so as to benefit the animals and myself. We also recommend that volunteers change clothing when they get home and wear no jewelry while at the shelter.
