Volunteer Opportunities

Urban Cat Coalition is not your typical cat rescue. We deal with a lot of cats that other rescues would turn away. It takes a special person to do the work we do. It is very rewarding but also tough work! If you think you are the kind of person who can love a cat enough to know sometimes their best home is on the streets vs locked in a cage - we are the rescue for you! Apply today!
