Cat Tree Carpenter

You’ll create interactive perches and cat trees for the cats who are awaiting adoption at the shelter based on their current needs. Using your own tools and workspace at whatever time is convenient to you, your carpentry skills will create warm homes and play structures for the cats waiting for their forever family. You’ll connect with Focus on Ferals to arrange a delivery.

Is This the Right Fit for Me?

You love finding a new project to put your carpentry skills to use in a creative way. You’re excited by the idea of looking up different types of cat trees you can create (hello, Pinterest!) and learning from Focus on Ferals what would work best for their needs. You like the idea of working on a project from home or in your shop, on your own time.
