Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Murphy's Kittens! We are a small rescue and depend on volunteers to help us operate efficiently.
We provide many opportunities for you to get involved! We welcome students 16 and older to volunteer in our shelter, and those who are 18+ can help at our Petco locations.
All volunteers must have a ride on site for the duration of their volunteer shift in case of emergency. Volunteers that cannot drive themselves must have a parent or guardian volunteer with them or wait in the parking lot while their child volunteers.
Volunteers between 14 and 16 are accepted on a case-by-case basis and must have a parent or guardian volunteer alongside them. Unfortunately, due to limited space in our shelter, we cannot accommodate groups of more than five people at a time.
If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page and we will be in touch.
