Volunteer Opportunities

Alley Cat Allies has many fun, new volunteer opportunities available in the Atlantic City vicinity! We need your help to reach out to the local community and make a difference in the lives of the boardwalk cats.

If you would like to volunteer for any of the following activities, please complete the volunteer form. Enter the activity name and your availability in the section marked "Other suggestions/questions/feedback?" at the end of the form. Once volunteers are signed up, we will email you with further details.

Adoption Program Helper

In the coming months, Alley Cat Allies will feature several of our foster cats from the Atlantic City Boardwalk Project through the Mays Landing PetSmart adoption program. Alley Cat Allies volunteers are needed to help care for the cats while they are staying at PetSmart. Volunteers will feed the cats and kittens; clean their litter daily; AND provide them with a little love and attention.

Please note that the adoption helper duties should only require an hour of your time and these are general timeframes in which you will be needed. We need help on the following days:

  • Monday - Friday, 8 – 10 a.m.
  • Monday - Friday, 6 – 9 p.m.
  • Saturday, 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, 6 – 9 p.m.
  • Sunday, 12 – 4 p.m.

Enter “adoption program helper” in the “other” section at the end of the volunteer form.

Colony Feeder

If after all this volunteering you find yourself unable to part with Atlantic City's boardwalk cats, consider becoming a volunteer feeder! We are always looking for additional feeders, and this is an easy way to fit helping the boardwalk cats into your busy schedule. Times and days are flexible.

Enter “colony feeder” in the “other” section at the end of the volunteer form.

Foster Cats from the Atlantic City Boardwalk Project

We are looking for dedicated, caring people to foster cats and kittens from our Atlantic City Boardwalk Cats Project. If you live in the Mid-Atlantic Region, we can bring the cats to you—you don't even have to live in New Jersey!

If you are available to foster some wonderful cats as they wait to go to their forever homes, please fill out our foster volunteer application today!

Educational Outreach

Display our educational pamphlets at your business. These flyers come with display stands so you can help raise awareness about the Boardwalk Cat Project.

Enter “educational outreach” in the “other” section at the end of the volunteer form.

Thank you for your interest in Alley Cat Allies and for all that you do to help cats. We look forward to seeing you out at one of the upcoming events and adding you to the Atlantic City Boardwalk Team!
