Gildersome is  looking for volunteers to foster for us. This may be for an adult cat who needs bringing out of their shell or kittens with or without mum who need socialising.

If you think you can help or would like to find out more about fostering, please contact gildersome@cats.org.uk. To foster for the Gildersome Homing centre you need a spare room and you must be able to drive!

In the following video, Indoor Fosterer, Jane Marescaux and her pet cat will tell you more about fostering...

*Please note Jane is being videoed in her living room, this room is not used for fostering CP cats.

 If interested in becoming a much needed fosterer please contact gildersome@cats.org.uk to find out if you are suitable to foster for the branch.

Welfare and Engagement Team Leader

Our welfare and engagement team leaders have the important role of co-ordinating, encouraging and supporting teams of volunteers. Using your excellent people management skills, you will support and encourage your team of volunteers to help people to help cats. 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.

Closing date: 31 Jan 2020
Trap Neuter Return Team Leader volunteer

Unfortunately thousands of cats each year are abandoned or have strayed and rely on charities like Cats Protection, and cat loving people, for help. As a Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) Team Leader volunteer you will make a vital contribution to maintaining a healthy population of feral (community) cats and will help alleviate cat welfare and community problems caused by uncontrolled cat populations. You will lead a team of TNR volunteers in your local area, who in turn will help reduce the number of kittens born without a home.

Lost and Found Cats Volunteer

Unfortunately our feline friends can occasionally stray or get lost, which can be extremely distressing for their owners. Our lost and found volunteers are passionate about reuniting lost cats and bringing families back together. They help cats and their owners by advertising lost cats and providing support, advice and guidance to people searching for their cats.

Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) Volunteer

Unfortunately thousands of cats each year are abandoned or have strayed and rely on charities like Cats Protection for help. Becoming a TNR volunteer is one way you can make a real difference to cats in your local area. Our TNR volunteers help reduce the number of feral cats by raising awareness of our TNR programmes, setting humane traps to safely capture cats, taking them to local vets to be neutered, and hopefully returning them back to their territory. Local TNR programmes are crucial, as feral and abandoned cats present a huge challenge for communities across the UK.
