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 - there are a number of roles to help in. For more information on our shop see 

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

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.

Volunteer treasurer

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats each year thanks to our dedicated and passionate volunteer groups and teams, all of which help our feline friends in a different ways. They take in stray and abandoned cats and ensure they receive the veterinary care and attention they deserve, help raise funds, promote neutering and help spread cat welfare messages. Our volunteer treasurers maintain the finances of local groups and teams, ensuring they hold the funds needed to continue their vital work. Cats Protection relies solely on donations from generous members of the public, and our volunteer treasurers help make sure these funds are spent in the most effective way.

Volunteer re-homing team leader

At Cats Protection we will continue to find new homes for cats and kittens in need until our work around information, education and neutering reduces the long-term need for homing. Life in a rescue environment is never ideal for any cat compared to a loving home. Our rehoming team leaders support a team of volunteer home visitors who collectively play an important part in matching our feline friends with their new families.
