Cat nuzzles human hand

Join Our Team

Thank you for your interest in volunteering! Seattle Area Feline Rescue relies on the support and dedication of volunteers in order to save the lives of cats and kittens. We simply couldn’t do the work we do without the support of every cat rescue volunteer!

You can learn about the types of roles our volunteers fill on our Volunteer Job Descriptions page. Most volunteers will start on a Clean Team shift then work their way up to AM or PM Cat Care, Retail, or even Adoption Counseling! See our Volunteer FAQs and Volunteer Handbook for more details.

General Volunteer Requirements:

  • Age 17 and older.
  • Be able to commit to at least one regular weekly two to three-hour shift.
  • Be able to commit to three consecutive months of service and adhere to our attendance policy.
  • Be able to complete our 3 step volunteer intake online and attend two separate hands-on training sessions.
  • For Cat Care and Clean Team roles: be able to squat, bend, twist, lift and stand for two to three hours, while working directly with cats and kittens.
