Fancy Cats holds Adoption Fairs regularly at several local Petsmart locations and we need a variety of volunteers to help run and faciliate fairs and adoptions.


Adoptions Assistants help set-up and tear down at fairs, keeping an eye on cats and answering questions. They also talk with potential adopters, do some prescreening and educating on our adoption conditions. Experienced Assistants are strongly encouraged to become trained as a Coordinator.

Adoption Coordinators are authorized by Fancy Cats to release cats to their new families. They go over and approve/deny applications, work with potential adopters to help find the right cat for their situation, answer questions, and sign all Fancy Cats paperwork. 

Ready to volunteer? Here's how to get started:

  • Please complete the appropriate Volunteer Application for your age and submit it to us by email, fax or mail.
