TABBYS PLACE A CAT SANCTUARY INC
July 18, 2012

I served as a volunteer at Tabby's Place for a few months in 2011 and it was always so fulfilling and fun. The people who run Tabby's Place are kind and welcoming of everyone. And of course, the cats are amazing. There were kittens at one point and after my shifts I would go sit and play with them for half an hour before leaving. If you love animals - especially cats - and want to learn more about compassion and how non-profits run, sign up to volunteer at Tabby's Place. We were given an orientation and small cat behavior training in order to be volunteers, and then we had the option to volunteer doing different things. Almost everytime I came in I ended up doing something different, from doing dishes and laundry, filing, sweeping and dusting the lobby, or cleaning the cat suites. My mom and I also volunteered at Catoberfest and it was a great day! Great music and people coming together to support a worthy cause.
