Volunteering

Nashville Cat Rescue is 100% volunteer based, and we're always looking for fellow cat lovers to join our group. Our biggest needs include:

1. New foster homes. The more foster homes we have, the more kitties we can save. NCR covers the costs of food, litter, and vet care for all cats in NCR foster care. Fosters simply provide a temporary home, transportation to/from vet visits and adoption centers, as well as socialization and TLC. Interested in saving lives? Here's our foster application.

2. Cage breakers. A cage breaker is a temporary foster who gives a cat a break from the adoption center. While all of our cats have fosters, sometimes our foster homes get full and are unable to provide the breaks. Once the kitty has had several weeks in a cage breaker's home, the cage breaker will coordinate with the foster to return the kitty to an adoption center.

3. Kitty chauffeurs to transport cats to and from our vet partners.

4. Adoption center volunteers for our PetSmart locations (100 Oaks, Hermitage, Cool Springs). We call them cage cleaners, but these volunteers act as surrogate fosters for cats and kittens at our adoption centers. Every day, we have a volunteer visit each location to clean cages, love on the kitties, monitor their health, and provide adoption counseling. 

5. Other needs include laundering cat beds for the adoption centers, assembling adoption packets, and helping with other administrative items.

Please email us if you would like to volunteer.
