Now that the kitties kiddies are back in school...
...and you're back from the beach
it's time to get serious about homework... and that community service requirement. At FFGW, we're strong supporters of community service. However, with most of our cats housed in foster homes. we don't have as many hands-on opportunities for our young volunteers as we'd like. But there is a way that you can get that service requirement satisfied, and it involves fluffy kittens!
If you foster a cat, or litter of kittens, and your student tracks the time spent socializing, feeding, cleaning up after (scooping those litter boxes!), our Volunteer Coordinator at FFGW would be happy to sign off on those hours. It's a win-win: your student satisfies the requirement, you - ah, we mean, your student - gets to cuddle with some fun cats, and you make the world a better place by helping FFGW relieve overcrowded shelters.
Fostering can be for a week or two, to give a cat a break from our adoption center in the Leesburg PetSmart, for a night or two when cats come in from shelters after vet hours, or for as long as it takes to get the cat or kittens adopted. You can find all the information and an application HERE.
