Fostering can be very rewarding and is a vital part of CARE’s mission of rescuing abandoned and homeless cats and kittens.  As a foster you will be given training and assigned a mentor.  CARE pays all cat expenses.  Learn more about becoming a foster by emailing volunteer@care-cats.org.

Cat Center Care Giver

Play, snuggle, feed and care for our adoptable cats morning or evening once a week at our adoption center in the Petco store.  This is also a wonderful opportunity to give the cats in the center much needed and appreciated attention and affection. At this time we currently do not have openings for cat adoption center caregivers, but if you are interested in volunteering, please mark “Wait List for Cat Caretaker at Adoption Center” on our volunteer interest form and we will contact you if there is an opening.


Join our fundraising team and plan events, work on grants, and engage our donors.  You can contribute and make a difference in the lives of homeless cats.
