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 Secretary

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to our dedicated volunteer groups. These groups of passionate individuals all help our feline friends in different ways. They take in stray and abandoned cats and ensure they receive the veterinary care and attention they deserve, help raise funds, promote neutering and help spread cat welfare messages. Our volunteer secretaries provide the support that helps our volunteer groups run smoothly. They make a real difference to the lives of our feline friends by helping maintain positive communications, supporting others, promoting the work of Cats Protection and signposting queries from members of the public.
