I’ve been volunteering for Cats Protection for the last year and it has been an amazing experience. I love cats and wanted to help out in any way I could. That was why I chose to be involved in the education aspect of this magnificent charity. Valeria Higgins, Education Volunteer.

Volunteering for Cats Protection has given me the opportunity to make a real difference to lives, not only for the cats that we rescue but also to the people that we meet along the way. Julie Seymour, Mid-Warwickshire Branch.

I believe in doing what you can, when you can. Don't wait until you have more time - that day may never come. Start making a difference now! Heather Cook, Woking & District Branch.

It is fab to be part of a team which creates so many happy endings.
Julia Dallosso, Caterham, Redhill and East Surrey Branch.

My role as branch fundraiser has taken me to many places and got me involved in all sorts of things that I would never have considered doing before. It can be hard work, but is tremendous fun too and definitely worth a try. Julie Seymour, Mid-Warwickshire Branch.

As a fosterer I get such pleasure in knowing that what I do makes a huge difference to the welfare of the cats and kittens that come into my care. Seeing them go to lovely new homes is one of the greatest rewards of all. Mary Wood, Cheltenham Branch.

 I volunteer as a fundraiser for Cats Protection Bridgend Adoption Centre, because I see the wonderful work they do there looking after the cats. They know all their names, their backgrounds and exactly what type of home they need – for example no dogs or an indoor home. I feel so proud to be part of that wonderful place. Sue John, Friends of Bridgend Adoption Centre


We are currently looking for the following people:
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. 

Closing date: 08 Sep 2017
Collection box fundraising volunteer

Every penny counts when it comes to improving the lives of the thousands of cats and kittens across the UK that need our help each year. Our collection box fundraising volunteers help our volunteer groups raise vital funds by collecting and distributing collection boxes in their local area. Making a difference can mean as little as raising 18p, which is enough to feed one cat in our care for a day, to £150 which is the average cost of a cat in our care.
