Volunteering

Volunteer page - Fluffy cat looking at telephoneThe Ipswich Cats Protection, along with many other Cats Protection Branches are solely run by volunteers. Every person involved in the welfare, care and re-homing of the cats, 'behind the scenes' with admin, fundraising and advertising are all volunteers. 

Volunteering can help you gain valuable experience, multi transferable skills, new friends, references for your CV and enables you to share the skills that you have and know that you are making a big difference.

Help us create 'happy endings' for the cats and kittens in our care!

“The Ipswich CP is such a fantastic place to volunteer. I have been in many different roles and each one I have learnt so much, gained many new friends and most importantly really enjoyed myself.” - Megan, volunteer for 4 years and counting!
