Town Cats of Ocean City - Cat Lover Volunteers

No experience is required, we provide training and mentoring for all new volunteers

  • COMMUNITY CAT CAREGIVERS - improve the lives of un-owned cats in our community by trapping, providing spay/neuter and vaccination, feeding, and cold winter shelters.
  • CAT FOSTERS – We praise you for wanting to offer the best gift of all to a cat in need, the gift of LIFE!  Without foster homes, they would not have this chance. Cat fosters provide temporary housing for homeless cats until permanent, loving homes can be found. Town Cats pays for the costs associated with veterinary care of our foster pets, and our foster parents provide the love, food, litter, and supplies.  Foster parents may help screen adopters by providing input to the adoption coordinator about the prospective adopter, their home, and the specific match with their foster cat.
  • EVENT VOLUNTEERS - help at events by being at the Town Cat’s booth; talking to the cat people that stop by; answering questions about our mission, our program, and our cats that are up for adoption; selling products, and running any raffles that we may have at the table. Sometimes we have cats with us at events, in which case they may need some care like water, food, and litter clean-up.
  • FUNDRAISING VOLUNTEERS - plan short-term and long-term events.  We are always looking for fresh ideas. In addition, some fundraisers write grants to fund specific projects.
  • PROMOTION AND PUBLIC RELATIONS VOLUNTEERS - generate and maintain media contacts, write press releases, maintain social media sites, put out flyers and signs, promote events, and attend community events to promote the Town Cats mission.
  • ANIMAL TRANSPORT VOLUNTEERS - help transport animals to veterinary appointments and spay/neuter clinics.
  • ADMINISTRATIVE VOLUNTEERS - maintain mailing, donor, and supporter lists; correspondence, thank you cards, donation acknowledgments; meetings scheduling and notetaking, etc.
  • PETSMART VOLUNTEERS provide general support to our foster parents by helping socialize cats, feeding, cleaning litter boxes, etc.
  • GRAPHIC DESIGN VOLUNTEERS take photographs and design printed materials to advertise special events and ongoing efforts to find support for our mission and homes for our animals.
  • CRAFTERS create items to be sold out at our events or used by our fosters. We have crocheting, knitting, sewing, and other craft patterns and ideas we can share with you if needed.
