Volunteering with FOF

Friends of Felines, Inc. is operated entirely by volunteers. We are always
looking for people who share our passion for helping the homeless and
forgotten cats in our community and want to offer their time and skills to help.


If you are interested in volunteering, email us at cats@fofct.org and our
volunteer coordinator will get in touch.

Volunteers must be 18 years of age unless accompanied by an adult.

Ways to Get Involved

Spending time with the cats (talking, petting, picking up, playing) gives them a break from the monotony of life in a boarding facility. It also allows us to assess the cat’s personality to determine if they are ready for adoption and to find the best adoption match. In some cases, cats
require extended socialization before they are ready for a forever home. Volunteers need some cat experience, and the schedule is flexible Monday-Saturday with various times available, including some evenings.

Work in the Field

Come work with our Trap-Neuter-Return team and people in our community to help manage the neighborhood feral and stray cats. Includes trapping and returning cats to their outdoor homes, as well as feeding community cats. No experience needed – we will teach you!
