CHOOSE how you wish to be a partner in our vision
that all animals deserve a chance for a full and happy life.
VOLUNTEERS ARE ALWAYS NEEDED to help with direct care and feeding (and scooping litter boxes) for the animals; petting and socialization; carpentry and repair of shelter buildings; newsletter writing, photography, landscaping and much more! Come spend a day, a weekend, or a week at our special needs sanctuary and get to know the animals and share in their day-to-day fun and games in our five sanctuary buildings. The felines will love your company and will entertain you well.
Sign up here and someone will contact you.
IN 2020 and 2021 we are not yet allowing volunteers to come unless it is to do outside repairs. Due to the pandemic we respectively ask that you check with us to see when we will be having volunteers at the sanctuary. Thank you.
