Volunteering

At the Branch

Currently just outside Gillingham we have 9 cat pens (now all full) and we are always looking for Volunteers to come and help.  What is involved??   Well firstly you need to drive. Secondly we need people who are willing to help clean the pens, litter trays, refill water bowls, but most importantly allow time to spend giving the cats the love and attention they need.   We need this help in the morning so you need to be with us from around 9:00/9:30 a.m.  It is a really an amazing experience giving time to care for some really traumatised  cats and seeing them gradually blossom ready for rehoming. 

If you would like to help but cannot commit to a regular morning perhaps you could help with transporting cats to and from the vets and collecting food donations from shops. This would probably suit either a retired person or someone based at home who could spare time when needed. This would be recompensed by a mileage allowance.

We are also always looking for people who would be willing to Foster cats.

If you are interested in or would like more information about any of the above  please ring Sandy on 01747 840621.


At the Shop

We would love to have some more people to help out at our shop.
 
The only requirement for our volunteers is a smile, as full training will be given on all other aspects of the shop. So, why not come and join us.

For further information please call the shop on 01747 833669 and speak to Andrew or pop in to say hello, we'd love to see you!
Cat Admissions Volunteer

At Cats Protection we will continue to find new and loving homes for cats and kittens until our work around information, education and neutering reduces the long-term need for homing. Life in a rescue environment is not ideal for any cat compared with a warm, loving home. Our cat admissions volunteers help our volunteer groups and teams admit cats into our care in the most effective way possible, making the process as easy and stress free for both people and our feline friends alike. 


Closing date: 10 Oct 2017
Volunteer fosterer

Across Cats Protection there are thousands of cats and kittens needing temporary homes until they find their forever families. Many of our feline friends are cared for by volunteer fosterers in their homes or in purpose built pens in their gardens. Most of our volunteer fosterers care for one or two cats at a time, which makes a huge difference and gives these cats a second chance at a happy life. They provide vital hands on care and accommodation to stray, abandoned or injured cats and are part of a dedicated team of volunteers committed to finding new homes for cats in need.

Volunteer neutering coordinator

At Cats Protection we passionately believe that neutering cats before they can breed is an essential part of cat ownership, and without neutering the UK’s cat population would quickly get out of control. Our neutering volunteers help spread positive neutering messages and make it easier for owners on low incomes to get their cats neutered. They help raise awareness of the benefits of neutering, promote our neutering schemes and respond to enquiries from members of the public.

Cat Care Volunteer

Across Cats Protection our feline friends looking for new homes are cared for either at our adoption centres, by volunteer fosterers in their own homes or in purpose built pens in their gardens. Our cat care volunteers are part of a passionate team that look after and meet the needs of cats whilst they are in our care. This is an exciting role for cat lovers, as our cat care volunteers get to spend time directly with the cats when cleaning their pens, helping with feeding and when enriching their lives before they find their forever homes.

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 assistants. 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.
