Volunteering 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 TheCatsCradleNC@yahoo.com


  • Foster Homes – All of our cats and kittens are in foster homes. The more foster homes we have the more cats and kittens we can help.

  • Fundraising – We need people who can come up with ideas and can organize fundraising opportunities

  • Grant Writer – Research and help write grants for Cats’ Cradle. Prior experience with grant writing is preferred

  • Adoption Event Assistants – Help with adoptions at the adoption centers in Hickory and/or Morganton during adoption days

  • Adoption Center Cleaners – Help with cleaning the cages at PetSmart adoption centers. Cages are cleaned daily

Here's another way to help... our fosters and the nonprofit desperately need supplies all the time. If you could donate even an item or two or run a pet supply drive at your work, you would be helping to save lives. Please call  828-461-0178 to arrange drop off.
