Cat Adoption Center Volunteers

Are you a cat lover? How does playing with cuddly adoptable cats sound to you? At our cat adoption centers you will be able to pet, play and cuddle with some adoptable, loving cats. You also will have the responsibility of feeding and caring for these pets during your shift. Sound interesting? Learn more below!

Our Adoption Centers are staffed entirely by ACDC volunteers. The cats, potential adopters and the staff can interact in a more intimate environment when using the adoption center. Volunteers should be able to work independently and feel comfortable interacting and speaking with the public.

This comfortable environment helps facilitate adoptions to those who may not have considered a shelter animal, while raising community awareness of the homeless pets in the Philadelphia region as well as the compassion, appreciation, respect and responsibility of lifetime pet ownership. It is a great way to expedite a new happy beginning for a homeless pet and to raise in kind donations to assist in continuing our mission.
