WE NEED DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS, LIKE YOU!
The Furry Paws Foster Inn is a network of volunteers working together to save cats, kittens, and dogs. We have no physical location- all of the animals in our care are housed in the homes of our fosters. Every member of FPFI is a volunteer, most who balance work and family lives as well. We would truly not exist if not for our many, incredible volunteers.
Fosters are the heart of The Furry Paws Foster Inn! All our animals are placed in home environments as we do not have a facility. Fosters provide love and care, and will take them to medical appointments as necessary until they choose the perfect forever home. Learn more on our Foster page!
Adoption counselors are our first line in the adoption process. By screening applications and interviewing potential adopters, they help fosters make great forever-home decisions for our animals.
Our TNR team plays a vital role in our rescue.
Trap-Neuter-Return refers to trapping community cats, taking them to be spay/neutered and vaccinated, and then returning them to their community, if safe.
Our TNR team also traps friendly cats and kittens who have been reported outside by the community which will then be brought into FPFI's foster program. Find out more going to our TNR Page!
Have a car? You can help! We rely on transporters to pick up new animals from local shelters (there is no feeling like that first Freedom Ride!) and help our hard-working fosters with rides to the vet or events.
If you have a passion for planning and people, we need your help! Events work can range from adoption events at local stores to fundraising, helping us man a booth or assisting at a restaurant night.
Volunteers are our heart – funds are our blood. FPFI takes on often expensive medical cases, and we can only continue doing this work with the support of grants and donations. If you have a passion for writing and rallying donors, we need your help – critically.
Good images get adoptions. By donating your time and talent, you can help our animals put their best paw forward or capture images that we can use in marketing/PR efforts to drive our mission forward.
If you have even basic tech skills – or are willing to learn – you can help with a variety of web-based activities such as posting our animals on adoption websites, content or web management, database, or design! In this online world, your skills are critical to keep our pups and purrs visible.
Writers help us get the word out! From animal biographies that we post on our website, to newsletters, marketing, grant writing and more – there are lots of great ways to help if your passion is the pen (or keyboard). Another great volunteer from home opportunity!
