Volunteering with the Pat Brody Shelter

Volunteers Are Always Needed!

We can always use more volunteers to help us take care of the cats or to help make the crafts that we sell at cat shows and craft fairs.

NOTE: You have to be at least 16 years old to volunteer, unless accompanied by a parent.

It is a very rewarding experience to watch over the cats, help them adjust to their new home and hopefully get adopted as quickly as possible.  And if you don't have the time to volunteer, you could become a foster parent.

For those of us who work full-time, our volunteer commitment is usually only 4 hours per month.  That's so little time for so much reward. If you'd like to learn more about volunteering, please call the shelter at 978-582-6116 or fill out our volunteer form.



Volunteer Responsibilities
Twice daily volunteers help with:

- Cleaning all cages
- Feeding
- Cleaning the rooms
- Washing dirty towels, blankets, cage liners
- Washing dirty dishes and litter pans
- Administering medications
- Noting the condition of all cats
- Socializing the babies and newcomers
- Playing, grooming and just loving them all

What we get in return is unconditional love.  It's an amazing feeling to watch a cat who had been abused, abandoned or neglected come to the realization that humans can be trusted and that life isn't only filled with pain and hunger.
