Special Project!

Do you have a hand sander that we could borrow? Contact Tina - or 562-CATS (2287).


We are painting the walls in the shelter a pretty blue and painting our logo and other murals on them. After we are done with the walls, we need volunteers to help us lay vinyl flooring. We don't need professionals, just helpers with painting experience. Contact Tina - or 562-CATS (2287).
