Seattle Area Feline Rescue:  Be a Cat Rescue Volunteer  

Must be at least 17 years old.  Come join a fun team of cat lovers who help save the lives of over 1,500 kitties each year! Support from caring animal lovers like you makes the rescue’s work possible!

About Us: Seattle Area Feline Rescue is a no-kill cat shelter in the north Seattle area who rescues high risk cats and kittens from places like over crowded shelters to give them a second chance. Our rescue and network of foster homes provide their foster kitties with the time, love, and space that they need until they can be placed with their forever family. Our goal is to create a healthy and happy space for the cats and kittens in our care, and to provide a truly excellent experience for our volunteers.

As a nonprofit, in order to keep up with the large number of lives we save each year, we truly rely on our volunteers and donors to be able to keep up with all the things the kitties need!
