We believe that if volunteers should do what makes them happiest, their joy will show in the organization and in the cats. If you’re interested in joining our community, please fill out the form below so we can get in touch about volunteer opportunities. We look forward to working with you in whatever capacity is best for you.

Care for our Store Kitties

We are committed to being a cage-free cat rescue, but Petco had graciously invited us to keep a few of our cats in their store to increase their visibility to passers by and promote Tails High. Therefore, we are staffing shifts of feeders who can drop by the store once a week either in the morning or the evening to refresh their food, water, and litter. This job comes with a commitment because we’re talking about the direct welfare of the cats.

Specialized Skills – Veterinary Assistance

We’re always looking for vet techs and nurses to help us out with the routine medical tasks we might be able to handle ourselves. We drastically reduce our costs when we are able to combo test kitties in their foster home, insert microchips, and other medical tasks that not the average volunteer would be able to manage. We love partnering with veterinary professionals that want to give back to the community by partnering with us!

And of course there’s the skills we didn’t even know we needed!
