Frequently Asked Questions
At Forgotten Felines, volunteers are an integral part of our organization. In fact, without them, we
could not provide the cats and the community with the level of service and care that people have come to expect from us. There are many ways to
participate in our organization and we're sure that we can find one to fit your purr-sonality and schedule.
The following information will provide you with an introduction to our programs and a description of the volunteer positions that each is supported by.
We pride ourselves on providing the highest standard of care for our cats and kittens while they are up for adoption.
This includes every aspect of "sheltering" from daily cleaning and health care/maintenance to grooming and socialization.
We also take pride in the thorough and care-full manner in which we pair our adoptees with potential adopters.
In order to maintain these standards, our Adoption Program Coordinator works with the following volunteers:
Colony Caretaking Program
Forgotten Felines is responsible for the care and maintenance of a number of cat colonies throughout Sonoma County. That responsibility involves the daily feeding
and oversight of each one of these colonies. This program is directed by our Colony Caretaker Coordinator and is supported by the following volunteer position:
Craigslist Contact Volunteer
Want a job from home? Are you a Craig's list regular? Keep FFSC in the forefront by being our Craig's List contact by advertising upcoming events, spay/neuter clinics, mobile adoptions and special adoptees.
Our Foster Program is unique because we work with both tame and
feral kittens and cats.
Therefore, our program has four distinctly different ways you can provide foster care: tame kittens, feral kittens, tame adults, or
feral adults. Although the fostering of feral cats/kittens requires a slightly longer and more intense commitment, it is extremely rewarding.
The Foster Program Coordinator is supported by the following volunteer position:
Public Relations Outreach Coordinator
Being visible in the community is a way for us to increase awareness of our mission, increase our donor and supporter base and educate the public about the animal services available to them in our community. We're looking for a coordinator to set up outreach locations (ie. Shopping centers, special events, etc.) and a core group of volunteers to staff these tables.
Relocation Scout and Set-Up Volunteers
We are always seeking relocation sites for cats that are in danger in their current colonies. We're looking for volunteers to help with site set-ups (delivering cage and supplies) and eventually delivering the cats. This volunteer would then stay in touch with the relocation client to ensure all is going well during the transition, coach them through the release and pick up equipment and supplies once relocation is completed.
Thrift and Gift Shop
Forgotten Felines' programs are funded by the income generated at
Pick of the Litter, our thrift and gift shop in Santa Rosa.
Our Store Manager relies upon a dedicated "staff" of volunteers to keep the shop stocked and the doors open. Volunteer positions
at our thrift and gift shop are grouped into the following three categories:
Our Trapping Program operates as both a service and as a resource for information/referrals. This program is the front line in our
effort to curb feral cat breeding and involves intense, direct contact with cats and kittens. Program participants work directly
with the public, with our colony caretakers, local veterinarians and their staff. The Trapping Program Coordinator is supported by
the following positions:
Looking for a well organized, "people person" to stay in touch with our volunteers, keep them informed and ascertain where they can best be used to assist FFSC.
Besides our core program volunteers, there are many other ways to help Forgotten Felines. At this time, we are also looking for volunteers who could:
Additional information about these positions will be provided during volunteer orientation.
