Due to COVID-19, Perry’s Place is closed to the public until further notice.

We are beginning to open up select volunteer opportunities & shifts based on operational needs. Please see below for our current volunteer opportunities.

Volunteer your time for homeless cats

When you volunteer with Heaven on Earth, you’re helping us fulfill our mission of transforming the lives of homeless cats through rescue, sanctuary and new beginnings. We need volunteers to help us care for our sanctuary and adoption center cats by feeding, cleaning, socializing and providing daily enrichment. We also need adoption counselors, photographers, event coordinators and anyone with a knack for marketing our residents and programs. You may even decide to take your volunteer work home with you and become a foster!

However you’re able to donate your time, we can assure you that no two days will be the same and every task makes an impact on the number of lives we’re able to save.
