Become a volunteer


The Refuge pour chats de Verdun is a “virtual” shelter; that is, we do not have a physical office nor do we have a shelter where the cats are kept. The shelter does not have any paid employees, therefore it is a 100% managed by volunteers who generously give their time and talent to keep the shelter operational.

If you wish to help in caring for cats,
the only way is to become a foster family.
To do so, you must be able to comply
to the criteria listed in the section


People who wish to volunteer for the Refuge pour chats de Verdun must be at least 18 years of age. Exceptionally, if adult supervision is available, a special agreement may be reached for minors who wish to volunteer.
If the duties you would like to fulfil are already being carried out by another volunteer, you can help us fulfil the needs we have at the moment, or we can keep your name on file for future projects.
New volunteers receive training for the roles they agree to take on from experienced volunteers who have a good knowledge of the tasks to be carried out and of our organization.
