The Giffnock branch is always looking
for volunteers to help us with our work. Here are just some of the
volunteering opportunities that we currently have available.
- Cat & Kitten Fosterers. As
our branch do not operate from a main centre, all the cats in our care
are looked after by fosterers on a short-term basis until a permanent
home can be found. Fostering is a very rewarding experience and the
branch provides all the food, litter, toys, scratch posts and covers vet
bills - all we ask is for your time to care for the cat. Please note
that your own transport is essential when fostering to enable you to
take cats to the vets for routine vaccinations, etc. All the cats in our
care must be looked after to Cats Protection standards.
- Home Visitors - Needed in all areas of Giffnock and surrounding areas. If you
are available to do one visit a month or 5, it would be great to hear
from you! Home visits are vital to access what type of cat would best
settle in a particular home. This role entails arranging a convenient
time to visit the prospective owner within their home and, with the aid
of a checklist, assessing whether the home is suitable for an
indoor/outdoor cat or kitten.
- Drivers. Drivers are required to collect cats from their
old homes, take them to their new homes, take deliveries to food and
litter to fosterers, take cats to the vet, etc.
- Fundraisers. We always need enthusiastic people who would
like to work with our Fundraising Officer to help with raising funds to
support the cats in our care.
