Volunteer at OAR
OAR volunteers make all the difference in the lives of our cats! We need volunteers for a variety of tasks. At the shelter, our cats need daily care and socialization, including cleaning their rooms, feeding, and – best of all – petting and socializing them. If you can provide a wonderful, temporary home for cats and kittens, OAR also uses foster homes for cats. And if you’re a people-person, join a committee to help us with some of our annual fundraisers and marketing events! OAR has lots of opportunities to match everyone’s talents.
Volunteer training is offered monthly. Fill out the volunteer application (click here) to get the process started, and a volunteer will contact you shortly. Seating is limited at training so potential volunteers will need to schedule attendance at the training with the volunteer coordinator. Thank you for your interest in helping OAR!
