We need help with:
Cat Care at the RappCats Adoption Center
Fill out our contact form to get started or contact us at , or call us at 540-987-6050.
The RappCats Adoption Center is a cageless, no-kill shelter staffed entirely by volunteers. We do two shifts a day, seven days a week. Shifts are fun and rewarding! We do essential tasks such as feeding the cats, scooping litter boxes and doing very light cleaning (e.g. washing dishes, wiping counters and sweeping) at each shift. We also take time to socialize the cats and prepare them for adoption - pet them, play with them, and get to know and appreciate their unique and delightful personalities.
Teams are welcome - including parent/child teams. We currently have several parent/child/friend teams and they are some of our finest volunteers! All volunteers receive training to assure that their work is safe and enjoyable.
In addition to daily shifts we need help with cleaning and occasional transport of animals.
VOLUNTEERS ARE CRITICAL TO THE SUCCESS OF THE SHELTER! Because we receive no government funding or support at this time, we can operate a shelter only with the help of volunteers from the community. Your compassion and dedication will mean the difference between abandonment and neglect for a cat, or care and a permanent loving home. PLEASE CONSIDER HELPING TODAY!
Shifts usually take about an hour and a half, depending on the number of cats in the Adoption Center at the time.
Foster a Cat
Space at the RappCats Adoption Center is limited, and we cannot accommodate all cats, particularly young kittens or cats with special needs. Therefore foster homes are always needed for both short and long-term care. Providing a caring foster home is a rewarding way to give a homeless cat a chance for a better life, and an important contribution to our organization!
All potential foster homes must be approved by RappCats. To read more about our policies, procedures, and tips on fostering a cat, please read our guide.
Adoptions, Rescues and More ...
Can't commit to a regular Adoption Center shift or to fostering? There are many other ways to help! We need help finding new homes for the cats, driving them to medical visits and other transport, assisting with outdoor rescues, keeping up with repairs at the Adoption Center, and with fundraising and grant writing. There are lots of opportunities to contribute! Please contact RappCats today!
