There are many rewarding ways to help the cats at OC Small Paws. We appreciate every donation, small or large, every loving foster home, and, of course, every hard-working volunteer! 

 

If time is what you'd like to give, we have plenty of rewarding opportunities. Contact us if you're interested in any of the following opportunities or if you have some suggestions for other ways you can help!

Foster

The rescue work we do is directly linked to how many foster homes that we have. Right now we are desperately seeking foster homes. This consists of keeping rescued cats/kittens in your home until they find their forever home. We ALWAYS have kitties that need a foster home. Especially during kitten season!

   

You can specify particular preferences (kittens/special needs/ willing to medicate/willing to isolate/etc). We get many calls requesting us to take in strays or owner surrendered pets and even though we would love to be able to accommodate everybody we are only able to help those for which we have foster homes. For this reason you would literally be saving lives by  fostering pets in need. We will guide you through the basics if you have never fostered before and even if you have we will always be available to answer questions and assist in the transition to the foster home. Please email us if you are interested in fostering.

Volunteer

We need people to clean our kennels and check on the cats at all of our Petco catteries on a daily basis. You'll scoop litter boxes to be sure, but you will also get to play with the cats to your heart's content, and quickly become known as The One With the Food, loved by all. Shifts take about an hour, and you can take on as many or as few shifts per week as you want. the cats are counting on you for food and other basic needs so you MUST show up for your shifts or give reasonable notice if you cannot make it.

 

We need regular volunteers to come to our weekly adoption events, and occasionally fundraisers, to help set up, greet potential adopters, and keep the cats entertained.

Donate

 

Help us give kittens and cats the care they need by donating! We have a donation fee to cover the most basic and necessary treatments done for every cat. Although we try to have the adoption fee cover these expenses, many cats we rescue require extra medical attention such as the common eye infection in kittens. Every donation helps protect and house homeless cats. We ALWAYS need more donations for vet bills! Here is what everything typically costs for a new cat we rescue: 

 

Rabies: $7

FvRCP combo shot: $10 (3 shots required for kittens amounting to       $30 for a kitten)

FeLV/FIV test: $20

Microchip: $10

Spay: $65

Neuter: $45

Boarding: $11/night

Dry food: $5/week/cat

Wet food: $5/week/cat

Momma cat and kittens hard food: $10/week/cat and kittens

Momma cat and kittens soft food: $20/week/cat and kittens

Litter: $13.50/week/cat
