Would you like to give a little time and make a big difference?
05 February 2020
There are a wide variety of roles through which you can get involved.
For those who love to be in their car, through becoming a Transport Volunteer you could be transporting anything from donated food to our feline friends. Our transport volunteers have the vital role of connecting our sites, volunteers, vets and donors, without which we would not be able to help the number of cats that need our care.
If there is a bit of a detective hiding inside you, our Lost and Found Volunteer role could be for you, helping to reunite lost and found cats and as well as supporting those families who are hoping to be reunited with their feline companions.
Do you love meeting the public and sharing your passion for cats? As a charity we can continue to help cats and kittens in need thanks to the donations we receive at fundraising events from generous members of the public. We have several fundraising roles, for those who love to have the exciting and varied role of helping at local fundraising events there are our Fundraiser Volunteer and Fundraising Event Helper Volunteer roles. Then for those who relish planning and preparation there is our Fundraising Events Organiser Volunteer role. Together these roles help to raise the vital funds needed to help our feline friends.
Or would you like to support our volunteers in your community, supporting neutering campaigns for owned and feral cats? Many people need support and advice about the benefits of neutering their cats. Alternatively, you could support our team of volunteers who make a real difference to local communities through helping to reduce the number of feral cats in their community.
Becoming a Trap Neuter Return (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.
Knowing how busy our lives can be, all of these are flexible roles, with the opportunity to provide support for as much or little time as you are able to give. From supporting a fundraising event during the year, to giving a few hours a week or during a month, we would be happy to hear from anyone who has some time to give to support for the cats in our care. It is also possible to become involved in more than one role as part of the Cat Action Team.
If you would like to learn more about our Cat Action Team please join us on
