Note: Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, volunteer opportunities may change. Please check the San Jose Animal Care Center’s website and Facebook page for the most up to date information.

Whether you are caring for kittens at the nursery or in your home, you're helping the shelter save thousands of kittens every year! Plus, you'll get paid in kitten cuddles. 


You can help kittens by (1) volunteering at the shelter to care for kittens in their on-site nursery, (2) fostering kittens in your home, (3) transporting kittens or supplies, or (4) temporarily overnighting kittens.


If you are interested in helping out with training classes, social media, or mentoring other fosters, you can also apply through the city website.
