Our Volunteers

We couldn't keep going without our wonderful volunteers.

Can we add you to our volunteer list?


Get Involved

Do you love cats?


  • Do you have a few hours to spare one or two mornings a week or every other week?

  • Is your significant other allergic to cats but you would love to spend time with some wonderfully friendly felines?

  • Are you retired and have some extra time on your hands?

  • Would you like to fulfill a passion that you have for animals?

  • Would you like to be part of a great volunteer organization and give back to the community?


    ...if so, HART needs your help!


Extra hands are always welcome at the shelter to help keep it clean and comfy for the cats. We also always need help with fundraising, fostering, admin, etc.


If you're interested in volunteering at HART, please review our volunteer Code of Conduct then complete a volunteer application and return it to HART - attached in an email, mailed to PO Box 351 Cumberland, ME 04021, or faxed to (207) 772-6177.
