We gladly welcome any spare time that is given to our organization. If there is something you would like to do that is not listed, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cat care – We have a spots open to clean the cat building and socialize with our cats. As an Animal Care volunteer you will help Kitty Kat Haven with their day-to-day running, spend quality time with the animals, helping to socialize them, provide exercise through play. Our volunteers also work to promote and education on how to care for cats.
We take in adult cats and unlike kittens they have a hard time adjusting to change. It is VERY important that all of our cats have positive interactions with people. They are shy, scared, or mourning a loved one who has passed away
