Merger Update

In preparation for our merger with Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic, we will not be holding new volunteer orientations in November and December. Volunteer orientations will begin again in January for our new merged organization, Animal Friends Alliance! Please revisit our website toward the end of the year for more information. Thank you! We will continue to accept new foster volunteer applications during the transition, especially for medical or special behavioral cases.

This page is designed to provide a prospective volunteer with an overview of volunteer positions offered at FCCRSNC. Some positions require advanced levels of training. It is not guaranteed that all of these volunteer positions will be open at the time of application.

Shelter Cat Care & PetSmart Cattery Care Volunteer

Shelter Cat Care Volunteers care for adoptable cats at our shelter and at our adoption partner, PetSmart Fort Collins. They feed and water cats, clean cages, dishes, and litter boxes, and they provide playtime, grooming, and socialization for the cats. Volunteers must be at least 14 years old to help with shelter cat care.

Foster Volunteer

Foster Volunteers provide temporary shelter and care for kittens, adult cats and special-needs cats in their homes. They also transport fosters to and from the shelter for veterinary appointments and adoptions. Foster volunteers must be at least 18 years old and have a home check. Please visit the Foster Volunteer page for more information.

Kibble Supply & Kibble Closet Organization Volunteer

Kibble Supply Volunteers help us provide free dog or cat food to pet owners in need by checking in clients and handing out food on kibble distribution days. Volunteers are also needed for food pickup, transport, delivery or storage. Volunteers are also needed to help organize the Kibble Closet on a weekly basis when we receive donations.

Adoptions Counselor Volunteer

Adoptions Volunteers at FCCRSNC help find loving, permanent homes for the shelter cats by working with adopters at our shelter. Help is also needed at our offsite Mobile Adoption Events with setup, cat handling, adoption counseling and post-adoption follow-up. Adoptions Volunteers must be at least 14 years old and must be at least 18 years old to be an official Adoption Counselor.

Office Asstant Volunteer

Office Assistants help out in every department with various duties and projects. From filing to data entry; making adoption packets to mailing thank you letters; making photocopies to answering phones, our Office Assistant Volunteers do it all! Oh, and there is usually an adoptable office cat to cuddle when you need a break.

Community Outreach & Supply Drives

Community Outreach Volunteers improve the lives of animals and people in our community by getting the word out about our great services including adoptions, low-cost spay/neuter, the Kibble Supply Pet Food Pantry, and more. Community Outreach volunteers also help run Supply Drives and events. Responsibilities can include posting fliers, asking for donations off the FCCRSNC wishlist, taking and/or working at an outreach table.
