Is This the Right Fit for Me?
You love working with cats, and you know that sometimes means scooping litter, mopping the floor, and washing their bedding. You can do all of that and squeeze in some cuddles, too. There’s a lot of cats in one space, so if you have allergies, this may not work for you. You may even be looking for an opportunity to serve alongside one of your children ten years or older—what a great way to introduce them to volunteering!
About Focus on Ferals
Focus on Ferals assists Grand Rapids cats through a full management plan focused on spaying/neutering (including trap-neuter-return for feral cats), a socialization and adoption program for feral kittens and friendly strays, and ongoing support for the people who care for these cats. Focus on Feral’s vision is to achieve a No-Kill nation through the effective use of humane strategies, where every cat is treated with care and compassion.
What Others are Saying
"It's amazing to see some cats that come in our doors in such terrible conditions, and with some love and attention become beautiful, healthy cats that soon are adopted into their forever home. It is so rewarding to know you are making a difference in the life of an animal that would otherwise not have a chance. We are caring for those who cannot speak for themselves. There is nothing greater than a cat climbing in your lap for love or rubbing against your arm for attention and knowing they will soon be in a loving, caring home—and you are a part of making that happen!"Chris
