Volunteer Opportunities

Do you love cats and kittens and want to make a difference in their lives? Why not join the team of Cats’ Cradle volunteers. We are always in need of volunteers. We have several volunteer opportunities available. If you are interested in any of the following areas, please contact us at 828-461-0178 or email
