Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Nose 2 Tail Cat Rescue! We are all volunteers and we 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.

How it Works

We have regular volunteers who come to our building every morning (8AM-12PM) and evening (4PM-8PM). The starting hours vary by day as we like to work around the schedules of our volunteer's lives.

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. We mainly communicate through a private Facebook group. 

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!

We do not have regular hours, we are by appointment only and we do not allow drop-ins.

Please read these important requirements before completing the application:

  • Volunteers MUST BE 21 years old or older.

  • You must commit to at least ONE 2-hour shift a week to be a regular volunteer.

  • Attend Nose 2 Tail Cat Rescue orientation, training, and meetings when appropriate.

  • You will be required to submit Act 33 & 34 clearances (free to volunteers).

  • Conduct yourself in a professional manner at all times when involved in shelter activities with the understanding that there is an expectation of a respectful environment for the cats, the public, and other volunteers.

  • Report any abusive behavior at the rescue to the appropriate person.

  • Support the policies and procedures of Nose 2 Tail Cat Rescue as outlined in the Volunteer Manual.

  • Adhere to all established policies and procedures.

  • Carry out instructions by head volunteer members as requested.

  • We do ask that parents be trained FIRST before children are brought to the rescue. At this time children must be at least 10 years old, respectful, supervised, and follow our house rules - permission must be asked before bringing children to the rescue for volunteer shifts. 

  • At this time we are not allowing required high school or court-ordered community service.

  • Nose 2 Tail Cat Rescue reserves the right to decline any volunteer application for any reason.

  • Our volunteers come to us with a wide range of personal characteristics. We believe that volunteer eligibility shall be determined without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, or disability.
