Are you a cat lover looking to make an impact in the rescue world?

Volunteers are the heart of our organization! We rely on you to help fulfill our mission and improve the lives of homeless cats and kittens. Sign up for orientation and start making a difference today!

General Requirements

We have a number of different volunteer opportunities available, some of which have certain requirements. Off-site roles are limited to volunteers 18 years and older. We welcome younger volunteers (12 years and older) at our facility in North Hollywood. If you are 12 or 13 years old, you must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times, including orientation.

All new volunteers must attend an orientation before beginning volunteer duties, along with any followup training for their preferred roles. You will learn more about our open positions and their requirements at orientation.

Open Volunteer Positions

Perry’s Place Volunteers

As a Perry’s Place volunteer, you can socialize, brush and play with resident cats. You will also help with cleaning and maintaining the sanctuary to ensure their comfort. There is no required time commitment. We welcome you to come as often as possible.

SpayShip Volunteers

Our SpayShip transport program provides free transportation to and from low cost and free clinics in the SFV in an effort to make LA a no-kill city! SpayShip volunteer responsibilities include canvassing and passing out program flyers, helping with tabling events, and acting as spokesperson for the program as necessary.

Adoption Volunteers

Help our cats find forever homes by becoming an adoption volunteer at one of our weekly off-site adoption events! Duties consist of setup, showing cats, and teardown. You also serve as a Heaven on Earth ambassador, answering questions about our organization.

More ways to help

Occasionally we need volunteers to help with creative projects — representing Heaven on Earth at outreach events, participating in fundraisers, and helping spread the word through social media and email. We also sometimes have administrative needs such as writing letters or grants.


All new volunteers must attend an orientation before beginning volunteer duties. If you are 12-13 years old, a legal guardian must be present with you during orientation and at all volunteering times.
