CAT is celebrating its 5th anniversary this year by holding a “Furball Fair” at Castle Hill Cider on May 7th, from 12-4PM. This is our largest event of the year, and we need help with event setup from 10am-12pm and tear-down from 3:45-5:15pm. (Items to be setup/tore-down include: tables, chairs, tents, and decorations.)
CAT does a monthly food drive at one of the local pet stores on the first Saturday of each month from 10am-2pm, with three 2-hour volunteer shifts. This is a tabling event where we collect food or monetary donations and share information/answer questions about CAT that any store visitors may have.

Be it promotional items, photos, data entry, dog-house building, fencing, media, etc. etc., our Core Volunteers who hold leadership positions are always looking for assistance to help them do the best they can for the animals we serve. Teamwork!
Several times during the year we gather to erect a fence for a lucky HOWS dog who will be chained no more! These un-chained dogs “zoom” around their new spaces, overcome with their new-found sense of freedom. You can be a part of the “zoomies”; no experience necessary. Come build a fence with us!
We often need assistance getting dog houses or lumber or fencing materials from Point A to Point B. If you have a truck, van, or trailer and would like to help us move “the big stuff” around, that would be awesome.
