Cat Care

Cat Care in the Cat Room

Cat classes are now mandatory due to the new health insurance rules of 2017.

Do you want to take care of and socialize some of our cutest and sweetest adoptable cats and kittens?

We’d love to have you! There are a few things that need to happen first.

  • You must be at least 14 years old and have proof of health insurance and a photo ID.
  • Please come visit the shelter during our normal operating hours to fill out a volunteer application. If you are under the age of 18, you will need your legal guardian to accompany you when you fill out the volunteer application.
  • Once your volunteer application is filled out, please register for one of our 30 minute cat room orientation classes.
  • Once you have registered for one of the cat room orientation classes, please be sure to purchase an ID badge for $4 and a Volunteer t-shirt (ranging in price from $13-$25).
  • Once you’ve taken the class and purchased your ID badge and t-shirt, you’re ready to start taking care of and socializing the cats! You can volunteer whenever you are available, seven days a week, 365 days a year, from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Cat room can be used for school credit; but, you must bring your own volunteer sign in sheet from your school.

Our volunteers are indispensable. Dozens of dedicated women and men donate thousands of hours in virtually every department of the shelter. Some are here every day of the week, while others come in one afternoon. All levels of commitment are greatly appreciated. If you love animals and like working with people, consider volunteering. For more information call our Volunteer Coordinator Pam DuBois at (561) 482-8110.

Most volunteer communications are done via e-mail. We hold several fundraisers throughout the year that we need help with as well as various speaking engagements and tours. After you have completed the training class you will be added to our e-mail list and begin receiving mail.
