South Bay Cats needs volunteers to support these activities:

Assist showing Cats,set up and breakdown of displays at our adoptions.
Cat and Kitten fostering.
Fostering: South Bay Cats needs people who love Cats and have time to volunteer and some extra room in their homes. Cat and Kitten fostering requires that you open your home and heart to our cats or kittens. The foster is responsible for food and litter. South Bay Cats takes care of the health, spay and neuter and most other costs. Many of the cats which come into our care are ill and as a foster you will have to administer medication and nurture your animals back to good health. As a foster you will need to spend time playing with your cats to assure that they are people friendly and outgoing. As a foster you may have to transport your animals from shelters, to the Vet and to and from our adoptions. You will usually have the cats in your care until they are adopted. The rewards of fostering are many. Most people who foster will be fostering kittens. If you foster kittens you will usually get to name your kitties and you will be able to see each little personality develop and get to play with and observe the interplay of your kittens. A big plus is you will get the satisfaction of knowing that you are rescuing cats or kittens and saving little lives. All or our fostered cats are rescued and in-doors only.
Feral Colony Feeding: If you can have only a few but your heart begs for thirty-two . . . then this is the volunteer opportunity for you.
Crawford. Stubby. Quilt. X-Ray. Tabby. These are some of the kitties found in feral colonies on beaches and docks, in parks and warehouses and behind strip centers. Their presence helps discourage the growth of rodent populations in these areas, but contrary to belief these cats cannot sustain or thrive on their own without the same kind of care and love given to their "adoptable" counterparts. Although South Bay Cats is an all volunteer, non profit adoption agency primarily focused on placing domesticated cats and kittens in loving homes, its compassion extends to the many homeless kitties in our community. We are one hundred percent committed to and practice a TNR (trap, neuter and release) policy.
If you love cats, enjoy nature and being out of doors, if you're interested in making new friends and keeping fit, volunteer for feral cat feeding and experience the joy that only their human benefactors can.
