Volunteers are vital to our existence. Our Sanctuary has limited paid staff, many community service volunteers, and our daily dedicated volunteers. Neither our Executive Director, or any of our Board members are paid. We use every donated dollar for the daily care, feeding, veterinary expenses, and daily operation and existence of our sanctuary.
We have many opportunities with both short and long term commitments. We need daily cleaning help with changing and scooping litter boxes, feeding, watering, mopping, sweeping, and loving. The cats are quite helpful during these duties, and quite regularly tell you to take a break and pet me. Weekly or monthly opportunities are available, so don’t feel locked into a daily commitment. It takes a minimum of 2 people each day to make sure all our kitties are attended to. We need volunteers 7 days a week, including holiday’s. So if you’re on a holiday break, why not come out and volunteer one day?
Various community groups have adopted our Sanctuary as a project. We have had numerous students complete their community service hours with our kitties. We have had Ashland University students volunteer here and build us cat trees and cubbies and provide socialization. We are part of the community service program for several local programs and courts, which help both the participants and our kitties. We have been adopted by several organizations for fundraisers, Christmas giving, garage sales. Our local high school girls cross country team organized our first ever 5K as a community service project. We have been blessed with caring, giving people and groups in our community, wanting to help our kitties. How can your community group help?
Fundraising is crucial for our survival. We are always looking for volunteers to help at our various fundraising events. We also appreciate, anyone willing to host or create a fundraiser on our behalf. Several residents have hosted garage sales, plant sales, and opened their homes during community events. New ideas are always appreciated!
