Volunteering


The valuable work we do for cats across the UK is only made possible through the efforts of volunteers who willingly give up their time and expertise to make a positive difference to cats’ lives.

At our centre we are fortunate to have a wonderfully diverse team of enthusiastic volunteers who help us to provide day-to-day care for all of our cats.Our volunteer team is made up of:

  • Cat Care Volunteers: who assist with all aspects of animal husbandry, as well as helping to maintain the clean and safe environment of our cattery. 
  • Cat Fosterers – who provide daily care for cats in their own homes, providing a temporary residence until the cats are ready to find their forever homes. 
  • Transport Volunteers – who get our cats from A to B in our ‘cat taxi’, helping to bring new cats to the centre every week for rehoming. 
  • Publicity Volunteers – our team of publicity specialists who develop brilliant content for our online platforms. 
  • Induction Support Volunteers – who support our team with volunteer recruitment and administration.
  • Work Experience Placements – students on fixed term placements who work with us to gain experience and skills to support their studies.
