We are looking for great volunteers to help us help more cats! Please let us know if you might be interested in volunteering.

The Adoption Center at Cat Town

Our cafe space is America’s first cat cafe, and allows us the chance to connect potential adopters with available cats in a comfortable environment. Volunteers help us in the “Cat Zone” by making sure the public is being respectful to our free-roaming cats and by helping with adoptions. Our newly expanded adoption center is where specially trained volunteers work with some of our neediest cats to build positive relationships with humans.

Outreach and Adoption Events

We need help spreading the word about Cat Town by having a presence outside pet food stores, at farmer’s markets, street fairs, etc. On a limited basis, we hold mobile adoptions for kittens [most of our adult cats are too shy for this!] and need help with set up and helping potential adopters.


We need help transporting cats from the shelter to their foster homes and to and from the vet. We also need help delivering supplies to foster homes.


If you have experience planning special events or any other type of fundraising efforts, or want to be involved with this in any way, we need your help!

Cat Promotions Team

Our work is not done until a cat is adopted. We need help with photography, videography, writing cat profiles, updating the website, and coming up with creative strategies for getting cats noticed by potential adopters. This work is done as part of a team, so it's not necessary that you're able to do all of this!

Marketing and Promotions

Cat Town needs help with the creation of print/web marketing collateral (flyers, posters, ads, merchandise, photos, videos), and social media networking, outreach events, as well as updating our website.

PR and Press

We need help with all aspects of developing a media presence: building relationships with the media, writing press releases, and so on. We also need help with our newsletter.

We are open to other ideas!

If you have other suggestions about how you can help Cat Town, please fill out our volunteer form to let us know about them!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Cat Town. We are a small organization looking for reliable, talented volunteers to help us help more cats!
