Volunteering

This opportunity is suitable for Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh participants.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity and our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Cats are at the centre of everything we do and our objectives are: homing, neutering and educating people about cats and their care.

We help thousands of cats across the UK each year thanks to our network of dedicated volunteers, staff and supporters.

We currently have a range of volunteering opportunities available within the branch. Have a look below to see examples of what you could be doing to help cats in your area.

We need help with all aspects of cat welfare, so if you only have a little time there are still things you could do, like transporting cats to and from fosterers and vets and helping with admin/paperwork. For more information please look at our cat welfare volunteers page.

If direct contact with cats is more your thing, we are always looking for indoor and outdoor fosterers to help us look after more cats and kittens in need. Please look at our news page for information about temporary kitten fostering - a delight-filled activity!

We always need people to help in our Cats Protection shop in Pydar Street, Truro. It is a very pleasant place to spend time - a happy band of volunteers helping to raise money to help Cornish cats.

Please have a look at our Volunteering leaflet for more background information.

If you think you might be interested in helping us please contact us on 01872 463466 and we will ring you back for a chat. We can then tell you a bit more about us and how you can get involved.
