There are many ways to get involved with PURRfect Partners.
--Contribute your time and expertise!
We are an all-volunteer organization, with individuals working together to answer emails, create fliers, take photographs,
write letters and publicize our adoptions. We are always looking for more help
in these areas.
If you can foster a cat, write grants, contribute
medical supplies or veterinary services, or if you just want to make
photocopies, please contact us!
--Organize or Sponsor a Fundraising Event!
We would love it if you wanted to organize a fundraising event to support our organization. Some of our volunteers organize garage sales and
bake sales to benefit our cats and kittens. It's a great way to get your friends and family involved in an important cause.

August 9, 2012 - Volunteers Needed to Socialize Kittens!
PURRfect Partners needs experienced volunteers to help socialize rescued kittens.
A commitment of 2 to 4 weeks is required. PURRfect Partners will supply food, litter, a cage, litter box and a few toys.
At the end of the commitment period, kittens will be returned to
PURRfect Partners, or an extended commitment can be made
if the volunteer and PURRfect Partners agree to additional time.
If you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Foster a Kitty (or two...)
We are in great need of foster homes for rescued cats and kittens. A foster home provides temporary housing,
love and socialization to a cat or kitten. All of the cats up for adoption at PURRfect Partners are kept in
foster homes. We ask foster parents to commit to providing a loving home for these cats until they find a permanent family.
Responsibilities include dropping off the cat or kitten at our adoption site on the weekend and understanding that the time it takes to adopt out the cat is unpredictable,
and may take several months. PURRfect Partners will provide food/kitten formula, litter, medical care and guidance.
We ask that prospective fosters fill out an
application and allow PURRfect
Partners to conduct a home interview. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please contact us at
Save lives... every time you drive!
