Volunteering

We would love you to get in touch if you are interested in volunteering with our branch. We are always looking for new volunteers in a range of roles. We have a rehoming team with fosterers, home visitors and welfare volunteers, an education team and a fundraising team. There are opportunities to match most people’s area of interest.

We would really welcome you getting in touch for an informal chat if you are interested in getting involved. This could be as little or as much as you want, should you decide to give it a try.

We would also be delighted to hear from anybody who could help with an occasional fund raising event, if you could spare a couple of hours or so, do let us know.

We all love cats and enjoy learning more about them as well as being able to help cats and their owners having a difficult time.

If you would like a chat please phone us on: 07760 780759 or email us at: enquiries@bolton.cats.org.uk

The emotional rewards, in whatever capacity any of us volunteer, are immeasurable.
Fundraising events organiser

As a charity we are able to help thousands of cats each year thanks to the generous donations we receive from members of the public. Our fundraising events organisers have the exciting and varied role of helping plan and deliver local fundraising events. They support a team of fundraising volunteers who come together to raise the vital funds needed to help our feline friends. Our fundraising events organisers use their passion for cats and people to plan cakes sales, barn dances, quiz nights – and everything in between!

Volunteer speaker

Our volunteer speakers have the important and exciting role of raising awareness of Cats Protection. They deliver pre-prepared talks, help spread messages around feline welfare and act as the voice of cats in their local communities. They also deliver talks to both adults and children in a variety of settings. Interacting with children is especially important, as they are the cat owners of the future, and by building their understanding and knowledge we can make the world a better place for cats.

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.

Transport Volunteer

Our transport volunteers help our teams and volunteer groups move equipment, litter, food, money – and even cats! They have the vital role of connecting our network of volunteers, sites, vets and donors. Without them we wouldn’t be able to help the thousands of cats each year that rely on us as they enable our volunteer groups and teams to effectively help our feline friends.
