Did you know we’re largely volunteer run? So it’s little wonder that volunteers are very important people at Wild Blue. We rely on the assistance of caring and hard-working volunteers in all of our programs.
Volunteering with one of our programs can be a very rewarding experience. We love cats and if you are of the same mindset, we can provide you with a volunteer experience where you can really make a difference in the life of a cat in need.
- Volunteering can take place in several ways, such as being a foster, helping with our events team, or helping with other programs such as the trap and neuter program.
- We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities that our volunteer coordinator can discuss with you.
- Commitments vary and can range from a few hours a month, to a regular schedule weekly.
- Volunteers are adults age 18 or older, or youths from 12-17. Our Youth Volunteer Program provides an opportunity for young people to gain hands-on experience with the responsibilities involved in caring for animals.
If you have a place in your heart and home for kitties—but you’re not prepared to adopt—consider fostering for us. You’ll make a life-changing difference to one of our homeless kitties by taking them into your home on a temporary basis until they are ready for adoption.
- Foster parents provide a clean, safe, loving environment for the animals in their homes.
- Our cats may need a foster home for a variety of reasons including age, illness, injuries, and socialization, or to help provide needed space at the Sanctuary for incoming animals.
- We furnish all the supplies you need, including food, litter, bedding, toys and enrichment items, and medical care.
- Foster parents are responsible for traveling to and from the Sanctuary and our Veterinarian partners for medical care and foster care appointments. The frequency of appointments varies depending on the reason an animal is being fostered.
- Fostering may last anywhere from two weeks to several months, depending on the cat or kitten’s needs.
- Foster parents are adults age 18 or older, or youths from 12-17. Our Youth Foster Parent Program provides an opportunity for young people to gain hands-on experience with the responsibilities involved in caring for animals.
