Volunteering

Welcome to Cats Protection Volunteering page for Downham Market Adoption Centre


Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Cats Proetction.

As a charity, we rely on the generosity and kindness of the public to enable us to go on caring for cats and kittens across Norfolk and the wider UK. Our work never stops, so your support, in whatever form and whatever amount of time you are able to give it, is vital to us.

We have a range of volunteer roles at Cats Protection, which you may be interested in.... these are shown below... If there are no roles showing, then we may not be recruiting at this time..

If you are interested generally about volunteering, or have any questions,, please  email us on norfolk.volunteering@cats.org.uk.



Please note - we are a rural centre in a remote location, so whilst a car is recommended to be able to get to the centre, please do think about how you might get to us if you are thinking of volunteering.

Cat Care Volunteer

Across Cats Protection our feline friends looking for new homes are cared for either at our adoption centres, by volunteer fosterers in their own homes or in purpose built pens in their gardens. Our cat care volunteers are part of a passionate team that look after and meet the needs of cats whilst they are in our care. This is an exciting role for cat lovers, as our cat care volunteers get to spend time directly with the cats when cleaning their pens, helping with feeding and when enriching their lives before they find their forever homes.

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.
