Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the National Kitten Coalition!

Volunteer Roles

Volunteers assist the Coalition in the following ways:

  • Administrative Support: Coming Soon!
  • If you live in the greater Washington D.C. area, please contact us at for local volunteer opportunities not listed on this page.

Please note that the Coalition does not provide direct animal care. Instead, our mission is to educate and train those on the front lines of animal welfare. If you are interested in working directly with cats and kittens, including fostering, we encourage you to contact your local animal shelter or rescue organization.

We process applications on an ongoing basis. If you are interested in volunteering with the Coalition, please complete the following form to receive additional information.
