Feline Lifeline needs volunteers throughout the Upstate (Greenville-Easley-Spartanburg) to help with its mission of helping homeless cats. We have many opportunities for which your time and talents are needed including habitat maintenance, cat socialization, fostering, and TNR. If you are interested in helping in any of these areas (or any others not listed) please click on the link below to our foster application form.

Habitat Maintenance

Feline Lifeline is a Petco Foundation partner, and we show some of our adoptable cats and kittens in the habitats at Petco stores in Greenville and Simpsonville, SC. We need volunteers to visit the stores daily for cleaning and socialization. If you can commit one hour a week to this, you will be rewarded with purrs, head boops, and playtime (from the cats, not people). Those under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult when volunteering for Feline Lifeline.

Perhaps our greatest need is foster homes. Feline Lifeline does not have a shelter; therefore, we are dependent on foster volunteers who open their homes and hearts to kittens and cats rescued from the streets or less-than-favorable conditions. We especially need fosters who are experienced at bottle-feeding kittens. If you can give dry, warm, and safe housing to a cat in need for a few weeks, we would love to hear from you. We do ask fosters to complete an application and interview to ensure our cats will be well cared for. Please apply to be a foster by completing the form linked below.

TNR (Trap / Neuter / Return)

Trap-Neuter-Return (and Maintain) is a humane method that involves capturing stray and feral cats in humane traps, having them spayed or neutered to prevent overpopulation, vaccinating them, and returning them to the cat colony from which they came. Volunteers then maintain the colonies by providing food daily for the cats in the colony. Studies show that TNR improves the lives of feral cats, improves their relationships with the people who live.
