Volunteering



Neutering team leader volunteer

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.

Education Team Leader Volunteer

Our education team leaders play an important role in raising awareness of Cats Protection and feline welfare. They support and lead a team of education volunteers by providing the help, feedback and encouragement needed to make sure other volunteers are confident and happy in their roles. As a team, our education volunteers promote and deliver pre-prepared talks, help spread messages around feline welfare and act as the voice of cats in their local communities. They deliver information talks to adults and children, and help spread our vision of a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) Volunteer

Unfortunately thousands of cats each year are abandoned or have strayed and rely on charities like Cats Protection for help. Becoming a TNR volunteer is one way you can make a real difference to cats in your local area. Our TNR volunteers help reduce the number of feral cats by raising awareness of our TNR programmes, setting humane traps to safely capture cats, taking them to local vets to be neutered, and hopefully returning them back to their territory. Local TNR programmes are crucial, as feral and abandoned cats present a huge challenge for communities across the UK.

Lost and Found Cats Volunteer

Unfortunately our feline friends can occasionally stray or get lost, which can be extremely distressing for their owners. Our lost and found volunteers are passionate about reuniting lost cats and bringing families back together. They help cats and their owners by advertising lost cats and providing support, advice and guidance to people searching for their cats.

Unfortunately thousands of cats each year are abandoned or have strayed and rely on charities like Cats Protection, and cat loving people, for help. As a Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) Team Leader volunteer you will make a vital contribution to maintaining a healthy population of feral (community) cats and will help alleviate cat welfare and community problems caused by uncontrolled cat populations. You will lead a team of TNR volunteers in your local area, who in turn will help reduce the number of kittens born without a home.

Transport Volunteer

Have you got four wheels that could help our four-legged feline friends? Our transport volunteers provide vital assistance to our teams and volunteer groups in the local area by transporting equipment, litter, food, money – and even cats! They have the essential role of connecting our network of volunteers, sites, vets and supporters. Without the passionate and committed teams of 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.
