Every Cat Matters For over 50 years Cat Haven has been an integral part of our local community. Within this time hundreds of staff and volunteers have been committed to rescuing, rehoming and raising awareness for cats all over WA.

How can you help? We currently require motivated, dedicated Volunteers to work on-site at our shelter! Volunteers are required to commit to a minimum of one, three hour shift per week (the same day each week) for a minimum of three months. On-site volunteers assist with the following:

  • Washing litter trays & food bowls

  • Cleaning cat enclosures, and feeding cats and kittens

Three shifts per day are available: 9am - 12pm, 11am - 2pm, or 2pm - 5pm
