Love cats? Always wanted to help those kitties looking for their forever homes in a positive, friendly way? This is your opportunity! :)

We ask everyone to please fill out the following volunteer application so we know how to contact you, what you're interested in and you are properly registered: https://tailsct.z2systems.com/projectList.jsp

Each evening we need to go visit our furry charges and clean their litter, feed them, play with them and give them some general loving! Ideally our volunteers also go during the day whenever they can to socialize as well - but the locked-in times we need are feeding/cleaning/playing in the early evening timeframe. Whether you can commit to one night a week or once every other week (or once/month?) - that would be great! It's easy and you really are making a difference!

Cat caretaking must be done during the store's hours (basically 9am-9pm, M-S, 9-7pm on Sun) and around what is considered "normal" feeding times. An orientation and filling out our volunteer application are mandatory. Please click on the link in this listing to fill out the volunteer application and we will email you back regarding orientations scheduled. All supplies are provided. For our calendar of orientations and to sign up - https://tailsct.z2systems.com/np/clients/tailsct/publicaccess/eventCalendarBig.jsp

PLEASE PRE-FILL OUT OUR VOLUNTEER FORM HERE: https//tailsct.z2systems.com/projectlist.jsp

We welcome responsible children as volunteers if accompanied by an adult and teens, based on successful completion of a probation period (and parental signature), can volunteer solo/pairs. We also have kitties at the Westport Petco near Home Goods/Michael's and across from Shake Shack in Westport.

Thank you!
