Volunteering

Cat We are always looking to increase our pool of volunteers, who may be able to help in some way, however small.

Do you have a few hours to spare? Would you like to make a difference? We would love to hear from you. Help is needed in the following areas:
  • Outdoor fosterers: who commit to having a pen in their garden, plus the time and patience to look after a cat or cats until they find their forever home. see below.
  • Indoor fosterers: with spare room, time and patience to look after cats until they are found loving permanent homes - read more here or see below.
  • The shop team at 172 Mill Rd, CB1 3LP would appreciate offers of help with a regular shift: Cashiers and back room sorters needed. Our shop is an important fund-raiser for the work of our branch. Do you love sorting things? Or are you a people person who can serve at our till? We’re also keen to hear from those with experience in managing other volunteers. New volunteers will help us expand our opening hours to raise more funds!, if you are interested in volunteering, please read more here and contact us at enquiries@cambridge.cats.org.uk
  • Casual event volunteers to help at occasional fundraising or awareness-raising event, even if you can only spare 2 hours at a time, this could really help us man our stalls at events organised by others and our authorised collections outside local supermarkets. If you can help with this, please contact us directly or see below.
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!

Fosterer Volunteer

Across the UK many of our feline friends 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, 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. Most of our fosterers care for one or two cats at a time and enjoy providing lots of TLC to those cats which 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 new-borns with tummies to fill and lots to learn. No matter what type of cats they have in care our fosterers provide the best start to the next stage of their lives.
