Volunteering

For volunteering oppotunities in the Croydon branch of Cats Protection, please take a look at the available roles below:

Now that we have started holding our fundraising events (see dates on our Events section) we would welcome any help from volunteers willing to either man a stall, help unload the goods, help clear away after the event or if you have a driving licence to drive our van.  If you feel you could help in any way please contact enquiries@croydon.cats.org.uk.

An important part of our work is finding new homes for the cats we take in as fosters and we have vacancies for Homing Organisers, also known as Cat Match volunteers who try to match up the right cat with the prospective adopter.  We have a rota of Homing Organisers doing a month at a time and training will be given before taking on this task.  If interested please select View Details below or contact lesley.emery@croydon.cats.org.uk.

If you are interested in fostering cats for us and have a room, flat or whole house free to take one of our cats for short periods of time and would like more information please contact welfareteamleader@croydon.cats.org.uk.

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.

Cat Welfare Team Leader Volunteer

Without the passionate and committed teams of volunteers across Cats Protection we wouldn’t be able to help the thousands of cats and kittens each year that rely on us for help. Our Cat Welfare Team Leaders have the important role of coordinating, encouraging and supporting teams of fosterer volunteers and cat care volunteers. They help make sure volunteers with direct cat care roles are happy and confident and provide advice and guidance when needed. This incredible teamwork means we are able to help more cats and kittens in need.
