Purrfect Pals is a no-kill shelter based in Arlington. They take in homeless cats, get them necessary veterinary treatments, and then find them a home. We have Outpost Adoption Centers in PetSmart at Renton Landing and Petco in Issaquah on Gilman Blvd.

As volunteers, we play with kitties, clean a litter box or two, and feed them. Volunteers help out 2-3 hours per week either in the evening or weekends. More information on Purrfect Pals can be obtained from their website

We would love to have some students join our team of volunteers which counts towards community service hours. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. PetSmart does require teens to volunteer with an adult until they are 18 years old.
