"I volunteer for Cats Protection because every action changes the world for some cat, somewhere." - Jeanette Greaves, Preston Branch.

How you will make a difference to cats and people:

Cats Protection helps thousands of cats across the UK each year thanks to our network of dedicated volunteers. This is one of the most valued roles within our groups: you will help by collecting and distributing equipment and supplies to other volunteers and staff, and help cats get from A to B! You will play an important part in providing support to other volunteers and staff, enabling them to help cats in our care effectively.

What the role involves:
  • Transporting cats to and from vets, fosterers’ homes and adoption centres,
  • Transporting equipment, litter and cat food,
  • Transporting equipment to and from events.
Skills and experience which are expected and/or can be developed in this role:

  • Knowledge of local community,
  • Full, clean driving licence,
  • Physically able to carry out some heavy lifting.
Time expectation:

This is a flexible role with time commitment dependent upon the needs of the group, a commitment of 2 to 4 hours per week would not be unusual. This role can be shared with other volunteers.
