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 centers at Petco and PetValu.  This is also a wonderful opportunity to give the cats in the center much needed and appreciated attention and affection. 8/7/2017- We have an opening on Monday evening or every other Sunday evening at Petco. At this time we currently do not have volunteer openings for PetValu.  If you would like to be placed on a wait list to volunteer at either of these stores, please submit an online volunteer interest form.


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.
