We always need volunteers in the mornings! That's how we operate our Adoption Center/Rescue Center. We have volunteers that come in every morning; 7 days a week, 365 days a year to clean, feed and water the cats that are housed in our Center on Washington Avenue. Monday - Saturday the cleaning happens 9:15 - 11:15 and Sunday 8 - 10. We always need more help! Some of the chores that are done in the morning include:


  • Feeding the cats, and providing fresh water

  • Cleaning the runs and cages

  • Scooping litter boxes and washing them

  • Sweeping and mopping the floors

  • Washing bedding, toys, etc

  • Washing down coutertops and shelves


Once in awhile we have additional tasks in the morning, for instance when we get a delivery of supplies. These all need to be unloaded from the truck and carried to wherever they belong and put away. Some of these items can be heavy, like the bags of pellets we use for litter. Help is always appreciated on delivery day (generally Fridays)!


Other areas where we need people include the following:


  • Helping with fundraising efforts, perhaps working at our garage sale or baking something for our bake sale table

  • Applying to be a foster home - Please call the Helpline: 607-786-7729 if you are interested.

  • Visiting with the cats and playing with them or brushing them


Do you have special skills that you think that we here at ACC might be able to benefit from?


  • Maybe you like to take pictures (we have photo ID's for every cat). 

  • Remember that everything that is done here at ACC is done by volunteers - people like you!
