We are always looking for volunteers to help with the many tasks involved in running our branch. Even if you can only spare a few hours a week, your help would be most welcome! There are many and varied roles within a Cats Protection branch - fundraising, admin work, fostering, the list is endless. The more volunteers we have, the more we can do to help needy cats in our area.
Fundraisers: Running a branch is costly - on average it costs £150 to care for each cat we take in, we need to raise funds to cover these costs. Can you help? Our branch is self-supporting so we raise funds to pay for this by holding jumble sales, street collections and other activities (we are always on the look-out for good quality items such as bric-a-brac, toys and household items to sell at our fund-raising events). If you would like to help with fundraising for our branch or have ideas on other ways we could raise funds, and would like to get involved, we would love to hear from you.
Fosterers: At present we have a limited number of fosterers, which means we can only take in a small number of cats at any one time - our waiting list is always full. New fosterers receive full training and their cat-care costs are met by our branch. If you would like to know more about fostering for Cats Protection please contact us.
If you can help us in any way please get in touch, you can contact us by phone or email (see our contact us page for full details).
