Foster Families
We’re always in need of foster families! This is a critical need for us at this time. If you can take in one or more cats, kittens, dogs or puppies, we need your help! Typically the kittens require less work to socialize and you are usually asked to take in (3) six to eight week kittens and commit to raising them until they’re adopted. If you’re willing to work with older animals, we literally have hundreds that are ready to be worked with. This requires patience and a long-term commitment of a few weeks to a year per cat. Contact us for more information or visit our foster program page for more detailed fostering information.

If you can make the commitment, we ask that you drop off your kitties (when they’re ready for adoption) every Saturday that you possibly can at the start of our adoption clinic and then pick them up again towards the end. Our adoption clinic is on Saturday at the Petco on 3284 Jefferson Street in Napa. Our volunteers will show your kitties to Petco customers. If you’re able to stay and chat with customers, we’d love to see you! Otherwise you’ll be asked to fill out a personality card about your kitties so we can discuss them with potential adopters.

Christmas Tree Lot
Get your tree, wreaths and assorted holiday items in the Petco parking lot after Thanksgiving through December 20th from us. The lot is volunteer run and we’re always looking for volunteers! Every single penny made goes to our mission.

We need volunteer help setting up and taking down the lot as well as when the trees are delivered. Help is needed to tag all of the trees and the other items in the tent. Volunteers are needed to walk the lot and chat with potential customers. We also need help keeping the generators running and we’d love to hear from people who are willing to spend the night on the lot in an RV. Help is also needed to nail boards onto trees to stand them up, help with hauling the trees to the customer’s car and help using a chainsaw. If you can bring your hammer and/or chainsaw that would be even more helpful! Please contact us for more information.
