Furry Friends thanks its volunteers during National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week (April 23-29) provides the chance for us to recognize the 100+ volunteers at Furry Friends. With no paid staff, our volunteers do it all! They care for 200 abandoned, lost or rescued cats in our shelter. They help us find permanent, loving homes for adoption-ready cats at PetSmart and PetValu. They take especially vulnerable cats into their homes to provide intensive care. And they help us raise awareness and much-needed funds. THANK YOU! 


Want to join our team and help change lives for our furry friends? Simply click the "volunteers" tab and complete the online application! We'd love to have you on the Furry Friends team!
