Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue (aka ARAS) is a wonderful cafe-free, no-kill shelter. I started volunteering here initially to relieve stress from a busy life, which works really well here because volunteers don't have to make an appointment to socialize cats. All you have to do is show up when they are open and let the kitty loving commence! They do have opportunities to become more involved, but there is never any pressure to do anything. If you love kitties, then come down and play!

Volunteering here has helped me to become a better person.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Volunteering here is very fulfilling. My life felt kind of empty before I started doing this. This fills me with joy.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I socialize cats, write grants, foster, hospice, attend events, and whatever else needs doing.

My favorite area of the shelter is the FIV and feline leukemia rooms because these wonderful cats are given a chance to live and be happy that many other shelters wouldn't give them. I love to sit in the back yard and just let them come to me. What better way to get a tan than in the sun with a kitty on your lap?

The Great!

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

volunteering and fostering. I've seen many kitties go to good homes through the expert care of the shelter staff. I've also experienced the great support they give for foster families of kitties in need.

Give them more money! They are doing everything right, they just don't have the funds.

I met many new friends (human and kitty) through volunteering. It was also great to have a break from the crazy pace of the rest of my life.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Great! I love it! That's why I still volunteer there.
