We are always on the look out for more volunteers to help us and there are several ways you can do this
Help in our shop - Please call in and speak to the Manager or phone the shop on 01303 264285.
Become a fosterer - Maybe you have a spare room where you could care for a mum and kittens or a single cat for a few weeks until we find new homes for them. We pay all expenses and provide you with food and litter for the cats. If you find that fostering is really for you then we can discuss erecting a pen in your garden should you wish.
Relief telephone cover - Maybe you are good on the telephone and have a sympathetic ear. We need holiday relief for our Lost and Found Cat Search line. See our separate Lost and Found section
Poster distribution - We need people in all areas to put up posters of the cats once a month for us in vets and shop windows. We can pay you basic fuel costs.
Home Visitors - as all our cats have had a bad start in life, we like to carry out a home visit before we place each cat just to be sure everyone is happy with the arrangement. New home visitors are always welcome and full training and support will be given.
Cats' Protection School and community speakers - Do you enjoy public speaking and like talking to children? We could do with people to go to local schools and organisations to give talks and create awareness of us and our work. We can supply you with talk scripts, educational DVD's and other materials you may need.
Make items to sell - Maybe you like making things? We can always make use of home made things to sell in our shop. Anything from cards to candles, we can sell it all in our shop.
However much or little time you feel you have to spare, your help will always be welcomed. Be it on a regular, occasional or one-off basis. We really would love to hear from you.
Cat food collection volunteer
Across Cats Protection we feed thousands of hungry mouths every day. Our cat food collection volunteers help coordinate the ordering and delivery of food to our fosterers and cat carers. They make sure there are no hungry tummies and provide invaluable support to local teams by being the point of contact in regards to kibbles and meaty meals.

As a charity we rely on funds donated by generous members of the public to continue to help cats and kittens in need. Our fundraising volunteers are part of a passionate team that help raise funds to help our feline friends in need. They help plan and deliver exciting and varied fundraising events, which can be anything from craft fairs, cake sales, sponsored abseils – and anything in between!
