Play with Cats and Clean up at the Gifford Cat Shelter

Calling all animal lovers! Spend your Friday morning playing with cats while helping to clean up the shelter at the Gifford Cat Shelter. Volunteers will help with tasks such as refilling food and water, cleaning surfaces, and most importantly playing with the cats! 

The mission of Gifford Cat Shelter is to provide a safe haven for abandoned, stray, abused, neglected, unwanted and injured cats with the goal of re-homing and ending the needless killing of community and companion cats. Founded in 1884 and sponsored by Ellen Gifford, the shelter was a pioneer in creating an environment that did not confine animals to small, movement-restricting cages.
