At Cats Protection we welcome volunteers with open arms, whether you are young or old, male or female, there's a place for you with us!

It is a fantastic chance to meet like minded people, help get cats healthy, and to find unwanted cats and kittens new homes. We would however ask that you only apply if you can make a fairly regular commitment as obviously our cats need care every day.  Our volunteer shifts are just 4 hours per week!  We provide refreshments and even cake to say thank you!

We have volunteer opportunities at both our Gildersome Homing Centre and Tingley Admissions unit where our volunteers help to feed clean and socialise the cats.  Show round visitors and help with fundraising and events.
The shifts are 7 days per week and are either 8.30am till 12.30pm or 12pm till 4pm.

However if you are interested in volunteering for us in any capacity please do contact us - and if we do not have room currently we are happy to add you to our waiting list. Volunteer opportunities do arise unexpectedly so it is helpful for us to have some potential volunteers to contact!  
If you think you can help or would like to find out more about any of our volunteering roles please call the centre on 03000 121 505 or email gildersome@cats.org.uk
