Volunteering

Volunteers needed! We have a number of voluntary roles to fill. If you would like to discuss volunteering to work with Rugby CP, please telephone our Helpline on 01788 570 010, leave a message with your name and telephone number and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.

Rehoming Waiting List Assistant; This vital role will provide assistance to our rehoming waiting list coordinator. You will pick up calls from the daily call sheets and chase up for details of cats that owners have requested help in rehoming. Being proactive and having excellent communication and organisational skills are a must. You need full internet access and a phone. Full training is provided. This is primarily an admin role to be done from your own home, but the occasional trip out to photograph a cat may be required, if you are able. 
 
Ferals Officer Required; The main purpose of this role is to Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programmes in the Rugby area. Trapping, transporting cats to and from the vets and then returning them to their original location will be your main roles. This role requires patience and perseverance together with good interpersonal and communication skills. You need to enjoy the hands on aspect of this role, dealing with unfriendly and potentially stressed animals, as well as talking to land owners and the general public. Your own car is essential, as is a mobile phone, and internet access is advantageous. This role requires flexibility. Sometimes weeks will pass with no animals to be trapped, neutered and returned. At other times there may be several in one week. Once traps are set, you need to be on hand to transport the cats to the vet. Full training will be provided. 

Fundraising Assistant Required; This is a role to work along side our Fundraising Officer to book, organise and staff some of our fundraising events throughout the year. You need to have good communication and people skills, have transport and to be online and with email. You will need to be pro-active in seeking out suitable events for CP to have a stall at; then along side the Fundraising Officer, book stalls, and then decide what kind of a stall is appropriate for each event. A rota must also be drawn up and staffed from our fundraising volunteers; sometimes it is necessary to set up/dismantle on the day, but not normally to man the whole event, unless you want to!
