Feeders — Help feed the campus cats! Feeders usually feed at one station, one day per week, with food provided by CAT. This is an easy and fun way to get involved and is very popular with the students. We hold an informational meeting for new feeders at the beginning of each school year and the fall feeding schedule is made at this time.
Fundraiser Table Workers — We hold fundraisers on the Trinity campus twice a year, in October (t-shirts) and April (Fiesta medals). You can help by taking a turn at our table. The work is easy and doesn't require a big time commitment and it provides an opportunity to meet other members and supporters of the Cat Alliance.
"Special Assignment" volunteers are called upon on an as-needed basis. Some jobs are hands-on with the cats while others are suited to those who'd like to help via their computer.
Trappers — Assist in trapping cats on the Trinity campus as needed.
Cat Checkers — Respond to calls about sick or injured cats by locating the cat and helping to determine whether a vet visit is warranted or if minor first aid treatment may be appropriate. May also monitor and give progress reports on a recuperating cat.
Transporters — Pick up a cat contained in a carrier and deliver the cat to the vet and/or return the cat to Trinity following medical treatment or surgery.
Medicators — Give medication in food, apply ointment, etc. when daily treatment is prescribed by the vet. We sometimes need to give medicine for 7 to 10 consecutive days.
