Volunteer with Mid West Cat Shelter, Inc.
Volunteering is an incredibly rewarding experience. You get to save lives, share your time with some amazing animals, make a difference in our community and make some wonderful friends along the way. There is no greater reward than the joy of saving lives and knowing you are directly responsible.
Mid West Cat Shelter Inc is made up solely of volunteers. We do not get paid, and we do what we can out of love for our feline friends. We need the support of our community and people like you, to help us continue to improve the welfare of cats and kittens in Geraldton and surrounding areas.
If you can contribute in any way, please let us know. We appreciate any effort and so do our cats!
Community Events and Fundraising Team
Our Community Events and Fundraising Team are very active, and hand make a lot of our items that we sell as fundraisers. These volunteers attend events like the Platform Markets, Bunnings Sausage Sizzle Days and Sunshine Festival (just to name a couple) to help let the community know about us, and to raise much needed funds. If you have any fundraising ideas, are able to help make items to sell, would love to help man a market stall or can think of any other way you can offer your time, we’d love to hear from you!

By becoming a foster carer, you get to enjoy company of a new feline friend and you directly
save a life in the process. There are basics you are expected to provide like food, clean water and a clean litter tray every day, a secure home and plenty of love until the cats are adopted out into their new forever homes. MWCS will help by supporting you with any questions or issues, as well as covering applicable veterinarian bills and providing monthly flea treatments.
“The joy of knowing you are saving lives and helping the voiceless” – Foster Carer Shannon
“For the love of making animals happy” – Foster Carer Amy
“The best part of fostering is the kitty going off to their new home. Some think that this is the hardest part, but I think it’s the easiest because then you have room to save another” – Foster Carer Jacinta
” Is greatly satisfying to give hope and love to not only a fur friend but to the family that adopts it means a second chance and everyone deserves a second chance …and lots of cuddles” – Foster Carer Trudi

There’s only so much we can do with mobile phone photography and any photographer knows that its not just about having good equipment either!

Our rehome coordinators are responsible for taking and responding to all calls on the MWCS phone, and hopefully all of these calls result in our cats finding their perfect forever homes! Rehome coordinators organise for potential adopters to meet suitable cats in care, as well as complete adoption paperwork and take payment for adoptions. Most of our rehome coordinators that take turns manning the phone all work full time jobs, so a lot of the calls can’t be answered at the time. If you’d like to give this role a shot but also have full time work, there’s no issue!

Our rescue coordinators visit the pound and select cats that are suitable to be rehomed. These suitable cats (if uncollected within period allocated by the pound) are then taken to our friends at Sanford Veterinary Clinic to be health checked, flea and worm treated, sterilised and given a first vaccination.
