There are many ways in which you could become actively involved in helping local cats to live a better life.

Cats Protection welcomes volunteers with open arms, whether you are young or old, male or female, there's a place for you with us!

Volunteering is the most worthwhile thing you can ever do. It gives a real sense of achievement, allows the development of new skills
and the social possibilities are endless!

Current Volunteer Opportunities in the Branch are as follows: 



  • Fund Raising .   Helping us to sell goods at our outside events, and with the packing and unpacking of the goods at the end of the day.  Must be around during the day and have transportation  
  • Car Boot Sellers
    More people are needed to help us at car boot sales to sell our goods. We will provide the items for sale and will also provide Cats Protection table clothes and banners, all you need to do is to provide the transportation and take the items to a car boot sale on our behalf!

Cat Welfare  

  • Fosterers - 
    People to care for our cats before they are rehomed. You will need one dedicated room in your home that can be used to house the cats that you will be caring for.  This is solely for the purpose of keeping any infection the cat may have confined, so that it will not infect the whole house.  Everything else will be provided ... including the cats!


Please contact us if you are interested.  

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.
