We NEED volunteers!
Any amount of time you can spend is valuable. We need volunteers every day of the week and sometimes we need you in the late afternoon or evening. We have jobs you can do from your home. If you have some time to give, let's find a way to put it to use for SOCKS!
Volunteering is not only good for the organization you choose to help, but it’s good for you! Did you know volunteering can not only help advance your career, but it’s good for the mind and body, and it helps you make new friends. If you choose to give of yourself two or three hours per week, SOCKS could use your help.
We need volunteers to help clean the cat and kitten shelter. The ideal volunteer time period would be 9 a.m. to noon weekdays, but we can use help each day until we close at 5 p.m. After training, you will help create and maintain a clean, healthy environment for the cats and kittens, as well as a more pleasant place for visitors, increasing the chances of adoption for our furry residents.
We also need foster parent volunteers to help us when we have mama cats with babies, or orphan babies need to be bottle fed, as well as when an adult needs a place to hang out until we can take them in. These are just a few of the situations that foster parents can help with.
Please fill out the volunteer application and/or the foster application and email it to along with a note telling us your schedule preferences. If you prefer, you may bring your application to the shelter during regular operating hours and discuss it in person. SOCKS is at 498 Carmel Drive, Fort Walton Beach. Call 863-5756 or email
