Volunteering

Do you love cats? Do you have a few spare hours each month? Do you want to make a difference? Do you love cats? Do you enjoy meeting people? Do you love cats?

If you answered yes to any of these questions (mostly, do you love cats?) then we'd love to hear from you. Our current volunteer vacancies are listed below. (these are unpaid volunteer roles). 

We are always in need of people to help out at events - even a couple of hours helps to assist with selling our merchandise and helping with the tombola, Lucky Dip etc and it's a fun way to spend a few hours plus you get to look at all the other stalls and enjoy the entertainment on offer. Have a look at our Events page and if you can help at any of the events listed please give us a call on 07733 390345 (after 6pm or weekends).

Frome Branch is run by a small team of very hardworking volunteers and we're always looking for new volunteers to help out in many different ways. No previous experience necessary - just a willingness to learn, training will be given.

There are lots of different ways you can help out, perhaps you like meeting new people in which case you could help out at a fundraising event, or maybe you're a whizz with the computer and can help with admin, sometimes we just need someone to take a cat to the vets!

We have a new section on the website of Volunteer Stories - you may be inspired by what our volunteers do. We will hopefully be adding more to this section over time.

Whatever your skills  or interests, please give us a ring ,we'd love to hear from you. It’s a great way to meet new people who have a common interest (CATS!! ), have some fun and help make a difference to the lives of so many abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens. 


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.
