Volunteer at 4 Paws

4 Paws volunteers don’t just love cats, they put their love of cats into action.

Over 100 volunteers belong to the 4 Paws community that work every day to help homeless cats and kittens and end needless feline euthanasia.

4 Paws volunteers come from diverse backgrounds and contribute their time, skills, and talents in areas as varied as socializing cats one-on-one to raising awareness at outreach events. They are adolescents, senior citizens, and all ages in between. They make new friends, learn new skills, and are an essential component to 4 Paws ability to save lives.
