Volunteering

At the Branch

Currently just outside Gillingham we have 9 cat pens (now all full) and we are always looking for Volunteers to come and help.  What is involved??   Well firstly you need to drive. Secondly we need people who are willing to help clean the pens, litter trays, refill water bowls, but most importantly allow time to spend giving the cats the love and attention they need.   We need this help in the morning so you need to be with us from around 9:00/9:30 a.m.  It is a really an amazing experience giving time to care for some really traumatised  cats and seeing them gradually blossom ready for rehoming. 

If you would like to help but cannot commit to a regular morning perhaps you could help with transporting cats to and from the vets and collecting food donations from shops. This would probably suit either a retired person or someone based at home who could spare time when needed. This would be recompensed by a mileage allowance.

We are also always looking for people who would be willing to Foster cats.

If you are interested in or would like more information about any of the above  please ring Sandy on 01747 840621.



Home Visitor Volunteer

Across Cats Protection there are thousands of cats and kittens looking for new and loving homes at any one time. Our volunteer home visitors support a local volunteer group by helping find our feline friends happy, caring and suitable homes. They communicate with potential adopters, match cats and kittens with new homes and provide support to new cat owners. This is a rewarding role, as our volunteer home visitors play a vital part in helping cats and kittens find their perfect forever homes.

Administration Volunteer

Thousands of cats each year rely on the help of animal charities because they have been abandoned, they have strayed or because there has been a change in their owner’s circumstances. Becoming an administration volunteer is just one way you can help improve the lives of cats in your local community. Our administration volunteers help provide vital support to our volunteer groups and teams across Cats Protection. They help keep up to date records of the number of cats that have been rehomed, collate supporter details and send out newsletters. This could be the perfect volunteer role if you have administrative experience, a passion for cats, or both!

Neutering Coordinator Volunteer

At Cats Protection we passionately believe that neutering cats before they can breed is an essential part of cat ownership and without neutering the UK’s cat population would quickly get out of control. Our volunteer neutering co-ordinators help spread positive neutering messages and make it easier for owners on low incomes to get their cats neutered. They help raise awareness of the benefits of neutering, promote our neutering schemes and co-ordinate and support a team of neutering volunteers.
