Could you be a Home Visitor?

04 February 2020
Could you be a Home Visitor?

Are you good with people, and do want to ensure that branch cats go to suitable happy homes? Could you talk to people about basic cat care and cat ownership, and deal with questions where necessary? Do you have a few spare hours every week?

Do you have your own transport?

Yes? Then maybe you could help! The work of a Home Visitor is great fun and really important. Before we home any cat we have to visit the potential home to meet the prospective adopter, and to ask and answer questions. This way we know that our cats will be happy and well looked after! It’s not about looking at the home itself, it’s about making sure that the new owners know the basics of care and commitment, and that the cat can be safe from any avoidable dangers and risks.

We are looking for a couple of people who have a few spare hours every week to help cover the North of Glasgow  i.e  Dennistoun, City Centre, Royston, Germiston, Blackhill & Barmulloch and also a couple of people to cover the East side of Glasgow –  Bridgeton, Parkhead, Rutherglen, Tollcross, Dalmarnock, Mount Vernon, Baillieston, Cambuslang & the Sandyhill’s area.

All our Home Visitors will get training and support – the first four or five visits will be shadowing an existing volunteer, so you won’t have to go it alone!

Summary of Responsibilities:

  • To ensure that Branch cats are given a good, suitable home, safe from unnecessary risk

  • To answer questions from the potential new owner

  • To supply the potential new owner with relevant information where necessary

  • To report back to the Homing Officer promptly following a home check

If interest please forward your name, address, contact number to homing@glasgowbranch.cats.org.uk

Please also remember we are a “volunteer” branch and there may be a delay in receiving a reply back.
