“Come on! What are you waiting for?” says Snowball in a wheelbarrow

GET INVOLVED!

Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Your commitment means a lot to our shelter cats and our staff!

There are many ways to volunteer

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful volunteers that have made PuRR Project what is is today. The dedication, hard work and commitment shown by present & past volunteers has made a huge difference in the lives our PuRR Project cats!

Each one brought their special gifts & knowledge. Keep up the good work and thanks a million!

You can…

» Drive the vet to the shelter either Monday afternoon or Thursday morning. About 5 hours including travel time. While there, you can choose to:

  • Assist the vet in the clinic. This is not for everyone, it’s wonderful work to help those cats and kittens that are not feeling well. On the job training provided
  • Socialize with the kittens ready for adoption. The more accustomed they are to a “good” human touch, the better they’ll do in their new forever homes

» Foster a kitten that needs a little extra TLC and socialization that can help it’s chance for adoption

» Help out at Adoption Days every Friday and on Saturdays during high season. Help set up / take down, transport the kittens, talk with prospective families, etc….
