Volunteer

We are all volunteers at Nose 2 Tail Cat Rescue! We literally wouldn't exist without our dedicated group of people who make a tremendous difference in the lives of the cats and kittens who come through our doors.

 

Starting in July 2021, we are ready to welcome new regular adult volunteers (21+) to our volunteer group! 

How it Works

We do not have regular hours, we are by appointment only and we do not allow drop-ins as we are not a staffed rescue, again we are all volunteers! 

 

We have regular volunteers who come to our building every morning and evening. The hours vary by day as we like to work around the schedules of our volunteer's lives.

 

Regular volunteers are responsible for EVERYTHING - cleaning, scooping boxes, feeding, giving medication, playing/cuddling with the cats, etc. We all do our part to keep our cats healthy and happy and keep our facility clean!

 

New volunteers will be paired with a current volunteer for training. After a few shifts and if new volunteers feel comfortable, they will be added to the regular schedule, which we typically plan weekly in a private Facebook group.

Want to make it a Family Affair?

We love when the whole family gets involved! We do ask that parents are trained FIRST before children are brought to the rescue. At this time children must be at least 10 years old, respectful and follow our house rules. 

Community Service

At this time we are not allowing required high school or court-ordered community service. We will be revisiting this volunteer option in the future!

 

You can help our kitties in other ways by sharing social media posts, telling your friends/family about us, raising money, organizing a donation drive, offering to fundraise through your business, or donating!
