Thanks to our partnership with Petsmart, we can host adoptable cats within their store located in Geneva, Illinois. This has improved our cat adoption rates and helped us SAYv many more homeless kitties throughout Chicagoland.

Shifts are only a couple of hours at a time and include giving some TLC to the kitties there (they really need it! Otherwise they’re in their cages). Other than loving on kitties, there are some basic cleaning chores such as cleaning litter boxes and doing laundry.

We need two volunteers to go to the store per day, so even if you can go a couple times per month, or fill empty shifts here or there, it makes a big impact for us.

If you’re looking for some hands-on volunteer work, this is the purrrrfect solution for you! It is SO much fun <3.
