Want to Help?
Our most urgent need is for monetary donations. Veterinary care is our largest expense. Donated funding helps us to spay/neuter and vaccinate all animals that come to our organization. Emergency veterinary bills are difficult to budget for, but when an animal gets sick or injured, we will have it treated regardless. We care for the pets in our care as if they were our own. Use the yellow button below to donate via PayPal. We also accept Venmo donations @Camden-Companions
Our biggest expense is usually cat food (dry or canned)...once they eat it, it's gone! We welcome and appreciate donations including dry or canned cat or kitten food, cat treats, kitty litter, litter boxes, pet carriers, cat toys, pet beds, scratching posts, blankets, towels, pillowcases, wee wee pads, and food/water dishes. We also have need for garbage bags, paper plates/bowls, paper towels, laundry detergent, bleach, and Windex. Any of the items listed above may be deposited in the donation bin located immediately inside the front door of Petco at 850 Garden Park Blvd., Cherry Hill, NJ 08002. If you have a large donation, send us an e-mail and we can arrange to pick up. If you have items that are not listed above but you think we may be able to use, please send us an e-mail to check first.
The more volunteers we have, the more animals we are able to help!
Taking care of cats at Petco
We maintain adoptable cats in cages at the Cherry Hill Petco (850 Garden Park Blvd., Cherry Hill, NJ 08002). This is where most of our adoptions occur. Volunteers are needed for both morning and evening shifts to let the cats out for playtime, clean the cages, and give the cats food, water, and love. Most volunteers work one shift per week (some more, some less). Each cleaning shift takes only about 40 minutes of “work,” then you can stay as long as you like to play with the cats and show them off to potential adopters. Times are flexible. We also need weekend afternoon volunteers to play with the cats and show them off to potential adopters. These shifts are longer (usually 12pm-2pm) so if you are not able to keep a regular weekly cleaning shift, perhaps you could volunteer one or two weekend shifts per month. Please note: volunteers under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
Love animals but not ready for a lifetime commitment right now? Become a foster parent! Foster parents may help raise kittens until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered, care for a sick pet until it is healthy, help socialize shy pets, or simply just house a healthy animal until a home is found. Since we have no shelter facility, foster parents are essential to our mission of helping homeless pets. Foster parents must have their own pets spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and tested for major communicable diseases (negative feline combo FIV/FeLV test prior to cat foster). Apply to become a foster parent here.
Spaying/neutering feral cats can make a huge difference against cat overpopulation. We have the equipment, experience, and sponsorship of surgery fees to help teach YOU how to become a feral cat trapper and caregiver! Getting started is easy with automatic humane traps that allow you to safely transport the cats to and from surgery. The ideal cat trapper likes adventure, excitement, and the thrill of the chase! Transportation and a recovery area such as basement or garage is a plus. To schedule your first feral cat trapping lesson, send us an e-mail.
