Volunteering

Our Crawley, Reigate & District Branch was formed in 1978 - one of its founding members is still
active within the branch. At June 2017, we have around 70 active volunteers and 200 members. Though some of our volunteers are retired, many work full-time and juggle their volunteering with other commitments such as families, home-making, hobbies etc. To provide safe and loving homes for any cat that needs it, to offer advice and to reunite lost cats with their owners.

The branch is run by a small group of volunteers who give their free time to help the cats in their area. We cover Reigate, Redhill, Horley, Crawley, East Grinstead and the surrounding areas. We always welcome new volunteers, no matter how little time you have, or what your skills are, we are sure we could find you something to do!


You do need to be in our area though. If you are interested in finding out more information, email or call 0345 371 2734 or come to one of our events. We welcome new volunteers - why not come and join the team.


We are looking for volunteers to help with many roles including PR, administration roles, fostering, fund raising, home visiting, Social Media and many other roles.
Administration Volunteer

Thousands of cats each year rely on the help of animal charities because they have been abandoned, they have strayed or because there has been a change in their owner’s circumstances. Becoming an administration volunteer is just one way you can help improve the lives of cats in your local community. Our administration volunteers help provide vital support to our volunteer groups and teams across Cats Protection. They help keep up to date records of the number of cats that have been rehomed, collate supporter details and send out newsletters. This could be the perfect volunteer role if you have administrative experience, a passion for cats, or both!

Volunteer re-homing team leader

At Cats Protection we will continue to find new homes for cats and kittens in need until our work around information, education and neutering reduces the long-term need for homing. Life in a rescue environment is never ideal for any cat compared to a loving home. Our rehoming team leaders support a team of volunteer home visitors who collectively play an important part in matching our feline friends with their new families.

Publicity volunteer

Our publicity volunteers use their passion and expertise to generate publicity for local volunteer groups and teams. They directly help our feline friends by raising awareness of the fantastic ways Cats Protection helps cats in need. By raising our profile they help us raise the funds we need to continue our work, raise awareness of adopting a cat, help promote neutering and make sure as many people as possible learn more about feline welfare.
