Volunteering

We Need Your Time! Please Volunteer!

We especially need new Fosterers and a Fundraising Officer - please get in touch if you are interested and would like to find out more! 

Have you got what it takes to help? Do any of the following describe you?

Do you love getting hands on with cats? Are you caring but not overly sentimental, with a good working knowledge of cat welfare? Are you not afraid to get your hands dirty, happy to deal with the public, prepared to work to national standards, and do you understand that cats in care need attention outside of normal hours? Yes? Then maybe you could help! A Cat Carer (fosterer's) role is very rewarding, and it isn't just about stroking cats, it's about looking after them as and when required, whilst we find them a loving home. Fostering is normally done in a purpose built cat cabin, located in your own garden (which of course will be provided to you), though spare rooms can easily be adapted for indoor fostering.

Do you just want to make a difference, to ensure all cats are homed to the right places, or do you have some storage that we could use temporarily? Maybe you just love animals and want to use some of your spare time to benefit cats and kittens in your area? Sounds like you? Then there are lots of ways that you could help, such as home-visiting, fundraising, or transporting goods locally. In fact, there's so many ways you can add value and make a real difference, just by offering a few hours of your time! Interested? Then please get in touch!

You can call us or send us an email - whichever way you decide, we would love to hear from you! We urgently need new volunteers especially with fund raising events to help take the branch forward and help more cats and kittens in the area!

Others volunteer roles we currently have available are -

Indoor cats fosterers
Speaker / Education volunteer - Driver and own vehicle essential


Please get in touch for more information on any of the above roles
Volunteer welfare team leader

Without the passionate and committed teams volunteers across Cats Protection we wouldn’t be able to help the thousands of cats and kittens each year that rely on us for help. Our welfare team leaders have the important role of co-ordinating, encouraging and supporting teams of volunteer fosterers and cat care volunteers. They help make sure other volunteers with direct cat care roles are happy and confident and provide advice and guidance when needed. This incredible teamwork means we are able to help more cats and kittens in need.

Volunteer re-homing team leader

At Cats Protection we will continue to find new homes for cats and kittens in need until our work around information, education and neutering reduces the long-term need for homing. Life in a rescue environment is never ideal for any cat compared to a loving home. Our rehoming team leaders support a team of volunteer home visitors who collectively play an important part in matching our feline friends with their new families.
