We Need You!
Homeward Bound Cats is a volunteer-driven organization, which means that the care of our cats as well as raising awareness for what we do entirely depends on people like you. Regardless of how much time you can offer us, you can make a huge difference!
We would not exist without volunteers. They contribute to socializing kittens born on the street, hosting adoption events, taking photos and promoting our cats for adoption, daily cleaning, and so much more. They range in all ages from all walks of life. Join our family and make an impact on homeless cats!
Ways you can help:
- Pet and Play: Cats and kittens need your human touch while they wait for a new home.
- Cat Care: Help us feed and clean our feline friends.
- Greeter: Welcome visitors and introduce our cats
- Office Assistance: Our cats refuse to do office work. Can you help?
- Must be at least 14 years old. Volunteers under 18 must volunteer alongside a parent or adult.
- Commit to scheduled volunteer times and notify Homeward Bound when unable to attend your shift.
- Must be able to squat, bend, twist, lift and stand when working with the cats in our care.
- Must be able to work well with people – work directly with the public and other volunteers.
- Must dress appropriately for retail workplace. We will provide a Homeward Bound t-shirt.
- Must be able to handle cats safely and compassionately.
- Must be able to take and seek direction and have a self-motivated work ethic.
Our Foster Care Program enables us to dramatically improve our, and our community’s, live release rate for cats. We began as a foster based organization and though we have an adoption center now, we still need the program to elevate our presence in the community, develop relationships with supporters and most of all, save lives.
Foster care is simply opening your heart and home temporarily for kittens who cannot care for themselves, as well as adult cats who need a break from the center or may be recovering from a medical condition or illness. Sign up today!
In order to be considered to be a foster home you must:
- Be 21 years of age or older.
- Have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in your household.
- Have verifiable identification.
- Understand that Homeward Bound has the right to deny your application.
- Agree to a home visit BEFORE and DURING the time when you might foster for Homeward Bound.
Thank you for your interest in fostering cats and kittens to help Homeward Bound!
Thanks to a grant from Maddie's Fund, we can now save the lives of cats in critical medical situations. The new program requires long-term fosters willing to give a loving home to a kitty that needs ongoing veterinary care for treatable health problems. We retain ownership and medical financial responsibility. You provide love, food, supplies, transportation, and a continuing dialog regarding the cats health.
