Volunteer With Us

Volunteer Opportunities

Cambridge Homeless Cat Rescue is a volunteer run organization.  Without our wonderful volunteers we simply wouldn’t be able to do what we do.  No matter what skill, if you love cats,  we need you!  Below outlines the current volunteer positions we have and a bit about what roll entails.

 

We are a work in progress and growing. Come Grow With Us!

Fundraisers

 

We rely on donations to keep helping cats.  We have different fundraising groups you can join depending on your interests.

 

  • Lottery Team – This team helps plan Raffles, 5o/50 Draws, Chase the Ace, Envelope Draws and other lottery based activates.
  • Auction Team – This group works to secure donations from individuals and companies for auctions that will run 2 times per year. 
  • ToeBeans Team – This team helps to secure monthly donors and provide newsletters and draws for our donors. 
  • Garage Sale – Once per year we will have a large garage sale.  The group will work to secure sale items and run the sale with help from other volunteers.

Foster Homes

 

Fosters are the backbone of our rescue.  We don’t have a facility so we rely on fosters who can take cats, kittens and pregnant moms. 

 

We support our fosters so that you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket and your only need supply love and warm place to live.  We supply the food, litter, litter box, toys and of course take care of all the vetting.

 

 

We prefer fosters with at least cat experience, even if you haven’t fostered before you do at least need to understand cats.  The cats we rescue need patience and time to adjust to living back in a home again.
