Volunteering

At Gosport Cats Protection we welcome volunteers with open arms.

Give a little time and make a big difference.

As part of the national Cats Protection charity we help thousands of cats and kittens every year. The majority of these success stories are thanks to the dedication and hard work of our amazing army of volunteers.

Volunteering for Cats Protection is a fun and rewarding experience. Our volunteers gain a great deal of satisfaction from helping cats get a second chance at life. If you’re interested in being part of our team here are the current role vacancies and application details.

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.

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.
