Volunteering

Thank you for visiting our volunteering page.
We are heartened that so many cat lovers across the UK are considering how they can be of help to our feline friends.

We have a number of varied roles available at the moment. Please get in touch with our Volunteer Team Leader, Laura, if you have any questions about any of the roles.

Transport Volunteer

Have you got four wheels that could help our four-legged feline friends? Our transport volunteers provide vital assistance to our teams and volunteer groups in the local area by transporting equipment, litter, food, money – and even cats! They have the essential role of connecting our network of volunteers, sites, vets and supporters. 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.

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.
