Volunteering

Without volunteers, Cats Protection Ely & District Branch simply wouldn't exist. Our amazing, friendly volunteers are a diverse group with a shared love of cats who fit volunteering around their home lives and personal commitments. We are always looking to increase our pool of volunteers, who may be able to help in some way, however small.

Do you have a few hours to spare? Would you like to make a difference? We would love to hear from you. Help is needed in the following areas:

 

Casual event volunteers 

To help at occasional fundraising or awareness-raising events in our area. Even if you can only spare 2 hours at a time, this could really help us man our stalls at events and our authorised collections outside local supermarkets, working alongside experienced volunteers. We would love to hear from people interested in sharing their love of cats at occasional events around Ely.

 

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.
