Volunteer Opportunities

Community Cats Maryland is a very small organization, and has only been up and running since 2009. We’re dedicated to offering hands-on help and advice to Maryland feral cat caretakers interested in doing trap-neuter-return. We have a great need for volunteers to help us continue our mission--for most volunteer "jobs," absolutely no experience is necessary, and time commitments are very flexible! We’d be thrilled if you’d be willing to just give an hour or two of your time each month.

One of our greatest volunteer needs is volunteer trappers. For more information on those specialized positions, see the links at left.

Some of our ongoing volunteer opportunities are listed below. You can also see our current volunteer listings on VolunteerMatch.org.
