*Important message - COVID-19 Update*


Thank you for visiting our Volunteering webpages. We are heartened that so many cat lovers across the UK are considering how they can be of help to our feline friends.


As we are easing out of lockdown, we are slowly starting to return our current volunteers back into the centre. This will take some time, so while we focus on this, we are not recruiting for any new cat care volunteers at this time. We are however in need of fundraising volunteers, so please feel free to take a look at the fundraising role description if you are interested.

For any volunteering enquiries please contact our volunteer team leader, Laura, at ni.volunteering@cats.org.uk

We regret at this time that we cannot take on board anyone looking for a placement for work experience. We look forward to being able to welcome students back to the centre in the future and we advise anyone interested in a placement role with us to monitor this website for details fo when we may be able to invite them to the centre.


Fosterer Volunteer

Across the UK, many cats are cared for by volunteer fosterers who provide a stable, safe and loving environment in their homes or in purpose-built pens in their gardens. They provide vital hands-on care and accommodation to stray or abandoned cats or cats whose owners could sadly no longer keep them, and are part of a dedicated team of volunteers committed to finding new homes for cats in need. Our fosterers carry out this role with support from their local branch or centre. Most of our fosterers care for one or two cats at a time and enjoy providing lots of TLC to those cats, who have been pre-loved or have had a difficult start in life. Some of our fosterers look after new mums and kittens and provide round-the-clock care to newborns to give them the best start in life.

Fundraising volunteer

As a charity we rely on funds donated by generous members of the public to continue to help cats and kittens in need. Our fundraising volunteers are part of a passionate team that help raise funds to help our feline friends in need. They help plan and deliver exciting and varied fundraising events, which can be anything from craft fairs, cake sales, sponsored abseils and anything in between!
