Volunteering

All cat lovers, can you help us to help the many cats and kittens that need the chance of a happier life.

Could You Become a Fosterer?
You will need a spare room in your home to enable any cats coming into care to be isolated. If you can make a long term commitment and have a secure garden we could arrange for an outdoor pen. We provide cat food, litter and veterinary care.You provide tender loving care, it is very rewarding to see a cat, often neglected and in poor condition, blossom whilst in your care and then move on to its new home.

Feral Cat Trapper
Our policy on feral cats is to trap, neuter and return to site, to stop a colony getting out of hand. Are you up for a challenge? pitting your wits against these wily cats that really are not keen on human beings. You will require a degree of physical fitness, the traps are heavy especially when you have an angry cat bouncing around inside. They may need to be carried a little distance to your vehicle, depending on where the colony is sited. Patience is also a great virtue; you will probably need to wait around until the reluctant cats decide to venture into the traps.

Drivers
We are in urgent need of drivers, using their own vehicle, who are available during the day to take cats to vets, fetch cats into our care or deliver cat food etc.

Fundraisers
Can you give any of your time to help with a jumble sale or a stall at our many summer events, usually on Saturday? Perhaps you can make jam or bake cakes.

Home Visitor
We are looking for someone with their own transport who can assist the Coordinator with carrying out home visits to prospective adopters of our cats. Training will be given to anyone interested.

Come and join our friendly team we look forward to hearing from you.

Volunteer co-ordinator

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to our dedicated and passionate volunteer groups. We have over 250 branches across the UK, all of which help our feline friends in different ways. Branches 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 co-ordinators lead their local team by supporting and managing volunteers within their group, maintaining communications with both volunteers and staff, and helping promote a positive and professional image of Cats Protection.
