Volunteering

VolunteerCats Protection Canterbury and District is a completely volunteer led organisation. We are always looking for new volunteers to help us with the work our branch does to support cats and kittens in our care.

It is hard work to run a successful and proactive branch and this is solely down to the great efforts of our volunteers. So we are always looking for more people to help us to join our team, so whether you can spare a couple of hours or a lot more please get in touch:  phone us on 01227 686191 or email: enquiries@canterbury.cats.org.uk, or for other ways of contacting us go to our contact page.

The main volunteering role descriptions are found left tabs, but there are many other smaller roles that maybe suited to people who have limited time to offer for volunteering. These can be anything from helping to distribute posters for events, taking cats to the vets for us, help with collection of donated goods etc.

If you are interested in doing any volunteering work for our branch then please call us on 01227 686191 or email us and tell us about yourself and what you would like to get involved with. The more information you give us the better, as it will allow us to suggest roles that match your skills and background.  Thank you, we look forward to hearing from you.
Branch team leader volunteer

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to our dedicated and passionate volunteer groups. We have over 250 branches across the UK, all of which help our feline friends in different ways. Branches take in stray and abandoned cats and ensure they receive the veterinary care and attention they deserve, help raise funds, promote neutering and help spread cat welfare messages. Our branch team leader volunteers lead their local team by supporting and managing volunteers within their group, maintaining communications with both volunteers and staff, and helping promote a positive and professional image of Cats Protection.

Fundraising Team Leader volunteer

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 team leaders have the exciting and varied role of inspiring our fundraising volunteers to plan and deliver local fundraising events. Using their passion and imagination, they oversee a small team of fundraising volunteers who come together to raise the vital funds needed to cover costs such as veterinary bills and food. Our fundraising team leaders support their team of volunteers in all aspects of their roles, making sure our volunteers are happy, confident and supported.

Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) Volunteer

Unfortunately thousands of cats each year are abandoned or have strayed and rely on charities like Cats Protection for help. Becoming a 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.
