I volunteered for the Cat Adoption Team from 2001-2009 (photography, writing cat bios for adoption, cleaning cages and fostering). I am very impressed with the organization of this truly No Kill shelter. Everyone there is a true animal lover. Their on-site veterinary hospital nurses ailing cats back to health and even helps the local wild animal shelter with their big cats. I fostered kittens until I adopted some of my fosters and realized I would truly become a crazy cat lady if I fostered more. I now just enjoy the wonderful cats that became my family members. Over the years they have helped rescue several strays that I or my friends came across. They are a truly worthwhile charity that I will continue to support and promote. Sorry I'm too busy and a bit too far away to volunteer anymore.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them copy their concept to expand their adoption centers so more no kill shelters would rescue cats who don't deserve to be euthanized.

We adopted a big, flame point cat named Dude from C.A.T. almost five years ago. Every person we dealt with truly had the welfare of every individual kitty at heart. I would definitely adopt from them again and give donations whenever I can.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The wonderful care they gave to Dude before we adopted him. They also give very accurate personality assessments, at least with him, which shows they really interact and care about their kitties.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

They're doing a fantastic job. Just keep doing what is working.

How did you find this group?

I was looking online to adopt after my favorite boy died.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

To become more active in helping animals find homes I began volunteering at our local humane society.

I have been volunteering at Cat adoption team since 2001. I cannot express the immense personal satisfaction I have gained over the years. I donate to the food bank every month to help keep people with their pets. This is a great program. Cat needs help in all capacities to continue the wonderful work of placing abandoned cats. Cat's partnership with the county shelters over the years has decreased the euthanasia rate in the Portland metro area. If you are considering volunteering, give CAT a try!

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Instead of birthday presents, we ask for cat food to donate to the foodbank. We also send a monetary donation from time to time. We love the idea that this is a no kill shelter, but that it also helps with those who are struggling with a cat food pantry so that their pets do not need to be given up or go without. They take care of animals, try to match the cat with the right family. Only a small percentage of donations is used for administration, the majority is put back into the shelter.
