We love our community partners and the unique support they provide to Tree House! There are plenty of ways to help cats in need as a group and we’re so grateful you’re interested in working with us.
Please note that Tree House has a very limited number of onsite volunteer opportunities for groups that we typically reserve for our current community partners.
For the well-being of our cats, direct cat interaction is not always guaranteed with group service.
Upcoming Group Opportunities:
Cat Walk – Summer Bar Crawl

Volunteers such as yourself help to support the event’s success by assisting with the setup or tear down of event supplies, checking guests in, distributing event swag, pointing guests in the right direction, and being an ambassador for Tree House and our programs.
