Volunteer

Our branch is run entirely by volunteers - people like you. Without dedicated and committed volunteers, we couldn't home cats and kittens who through no fault of their own find themselves alone and uncared for. We couldn't provide care to cats that need a bit of rehabilitation and TLC or visit the homes of people who wish to adopt to ensure that the environment is suitable. We couldn't trap feral cats to neuter them and prevent unwanted kittens. We couldn't provide information or education about cat care. And we couldn't publicise what we do or raise the funds to buy food, medicines and supplies.

If you can offer your time in any way we'd be pleased to hear from you. Some of the ways you can help are:

  • Collecting and delivering cats including to/from vets
  • Collecting items for sale at our events, delivering goods to events
  • Helping setting up and during events...stalls, refreshments etc
  • Baking or making crafts for events
  • General administration work involved in running the branch (may be done from home)
  • Keeping computer databases up to date
  • Helping with publicising our work and our fundraising events (distributing leaflets and posters, contacting local press or businesses)

Cat Adoption Team Leader volunteer

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. Life in a rescue environment is never ideal for any cat compared to a loving home. Our Cat Adoption Team Leaders support cat homing and as part of this they may lead a team of volunteer home visitors who collectively play an important part in matching our feline friends with their new families. Our Cat Adoption Team Leaders support their team of volunteers in all aspects of their roles, making sure our volunteers are happy, confident and supported.

Fundraising Team Leader volunteer

As a charity we are able to help thousands of cats each year thanks to the generous donations we receive from members of the public. Our fundraising team leaders have the exciting and varied role of inspiring our fundraising volunteers to plan and deliver local fundraising events. Using their passion and imagination, they oversee a small team of fundraising volunteers who come together to raise the vital funds needed to cover costs such as veterinary bills and food. Our fundraising team leaders support their team of volunteers in all aspects of their roles, making sure our volunteers are happy, confident and supported.

Publicity Team Leader Volunteer

Our publicity team leaders have the important role of supporting a wider team of publicity volunteers. As a team our publicity volunteers collectively keep members of the public informed of the vital and varied ways we help our feline friends in need. Raising awareness is crucial to us being able to help the thousands of cats and kittens each year that rely on us. A higher profile can help raise funds, raise awareness of adopting a cat, promote neutering and encourage as many people as possible to learn about feline welfare.

Fosterer volunteer

Across the UK, many cats are cared for by volunteer fosterers who provide a stable, safe and loving environment in their homes or in purpose-built pens in their gardens. They provide vital hands-on care and accommodation to stray or abandoned cats or cats whose owners could sadly no longer keep them, and are part of a dedicated team of volunteers committed to finding new homes for cats in need. Our fosterers carry out this role with support from their local branch or centre. Most of our fosterers care for one or two cats at a time and enjoy providing lots of TLC to those cats, who have been pre-loved or have had a difficult start in life. Some of our fosterers look after new mums and kittens and provide round-the-clock care to newborns to give them the best start in life.
