Things to consider:

  • You must have a valid email address to volunteer with Cat Haven, as we primarily use email to communicate with our volunteers. Upon becoming a volunteer, you will be added to our general email newsletters. You may unsubscribe from these at any time. 
  • To be considered an active volunteer of Cat Haven, you must complete at least one shift per quarter. Volunteers will be flagged after 90 days of inactivity and will no longer receive communications from Cat Haven. However, you may "reactivate" your account by contacting our Shelter Manager at volunteer@cathaven.org.
  • If you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian MUST be with you at all times. Your parent MUST actively participate in your volunteer activities.
