A Better Life for Cats in St. Louis


Volunteering at Animal House

Every day, we’re thankful to have such supportive volunteers, yet also aware of how much more there is to be done. We would be delighted to have your help.

If you can’t give your time to our kitties, there are plenty of other gifts you can share with them. Learn more by visiting our ‘Donate’ page, or click the button below to make a gift online today.


What It’s All About

Animal House is home to more than 200 kittens and cats. The care our feline residents get is top-notch, focused on helping homeless cats to rebound and get ready to connect with a lifelong family. With a very small staff, this isn’t possible without dedicated volunteers who come by regularly to provide caring attention.

There is a wide range of roles here, and we make an effort to match volunteers with work that’s comfortable and meaningful for them. Lots of our volunteers come by just to spend time socializing cats. Others fold laundry, wash and fill food bowls, and make sure cat enclosures stay clean. This is work that happens seven days a week, and it’s essential to Animal House operations. But that’s not the only opportunity for volunteers to help Animal House.

We’re also searching for (and hoping for) volunteers with interests and skills outside of caregiving. So don’t let allergies or shyness around animals keep you away.
