Care for Cats at the KittyKind Adoption Center

KittyKind is dedicated to matching cats with their perfect homes and educating the public on feline welfare in New York City. They have an unwavering commitment to caring for and finding the best adoptive homes for their cats, with a special dedication to those who are deemed “special needs” because of illness, injury, disability, or age. Each year, KittyKind rescues more than 400 cats and makes a lifetime commitment to each one. Their happy endings attest to the dedication of the network of compassionate, tireless volunteers and to the contributions of the public, who provide donations, foster care, and, ultimately, wonderful forever homes.

WHAT: Health-Maintenance volunteers give vet-prescribed care and medication to rescued cats awaiting adoption at the KittyKind adoption center. Care consists of giving, as needed, eye cream, digestive aid, ear cleaning, etc. Training and materials are provided. Training takes about a month. This volunteer opportunity is relevant experience for pre-vet students, or for anyone who is dedicated to animals.

WHEN: The shift is about 3-4 hours, 1X a week, preferably with a year's commitment.

WHERE: Petco Store, 860 Broadway, 17th Street New York, NY

Partner

KittyKind is a not-for-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group. Our mission is to reduce the number of abandoned or homeless animals in New York City, where too many are discarded, abused, or ultimately euthanized at the city shelter. So often when other doors are shut, KittyKind welcomes cats from owners who can no longer keep them, from good Samaritans who find a cat on the street, and from rescuers who depend on us to take in the adoptable cats they find in their TNR (trap-neuter-release) efforts. We have an unwavering commitment to caring for and finding the best adoptive homes for our cats, with a special dedication to those who are deemed “special needs,” because of illness, injury, disability, or age.
