Fosterers Wanted
  • Help at fund raising events - we regularly attend stalls at various events round the county and are always looking for helpers to run these stalls. It is a great way of helping the cats and kittens in our care as it raises much needed funds and is also a great way of meeting other people. It is good fun!
  • Hold a fund raising event - coffee mornings and bring-and-buy sales are always popular events. How about arranging a Paw-some Afternoon Tea party for your friends? Click here for details.
  • Making cakes and preserves - for sale at fund raising events
  • Collect - bric-a-brac, tombola prizes, used stamps, articles for sale, cuddly toys, etc
  • Fostering - (see pic below) we need people to foster cats and kittens on a short term basis whilst they are looking for their new homes. This could mean the installation of a cat pen in your garden or giving up a spare room for a an older cat or for a mum and her kittens. All expenses are paid for by the branch. Click here for details.
  • Trapping cats - we have feral colonies which need to be neutered and need volunteers to carry out this vital task
  • Home visiting - before a cat or kitten is rehomed, we carry out home visits to make sure the new home and owners are suitable for their chosen cat
  • Admin duties - There are various tasks involving paperwork and computer data which need to be kept up-to-date

Fundraising Team Leader volunteer

As a charity we are able to help thousands of cats each year thanks to the generous donations we receive from members of the public. Our fundraising team leaders have the exciting and varied role of inspiring our fundraising volunteers to plan and deliver local fundraising events. Using their passion and imagination, they oversee a small team of fundraising volunteers who come together to raise the vital funds needed to cover costs such as veterinary bills and food. Our fundraising team leaders support their team of volunteers in all aspects of their roles, making sure our volunteers are happy, confident and supported.

Transport Volunteer

If you enjoy driving and would love to use those skills to help our cats, this could be the role for you. 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.
