Volunteering

Thinking of volunteering for North Ayrshire Cats Protection??

We foster our cats in care at foster homes in the North Ayrshire area.  Access to a car is an advantage as our cat pens are dotted about North Ayrshire.

We have around 30 active volunteers within the branch doing a wide range of activities to ensure the smooth running of the branch. 

A lot of our cat care work is done independently, with interaction with other volunteers at events such as our adoption shows, branch meetings and fundraising events.

We meet once every 2nd month as a team, and outwith that we rely on text and emails to each other to ensure that the needs of the cats are met, together with all the other work required to ensure that the branch is running to meet the needs of the cats in our area.

We do not have an adoption centre, or one location from which the cats and the branch are based.  All our cats are fostered with other volunteers within the branch.

Please look below at the current opportunities within the branch.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Due to the volume of cat care, and everyone involved within the branch are volunteers, we will respond to applicants as soon as we can.

Many thanks.

Fosterer support volunteer

Across the UK our cats and kittens looking for new homes are cared for by volunteer fosterers in their homes or purpose-built pens in their gardens. Our fosterer support volunteers are members of the same household, creating a fostering team, who provide vital assistance and support to our volunteer fosterers. Fosterer support volunteers spend time directly with cats, cleaning their pens, feeding, grooming and enriching their play time.

Fundraising Events Helper

As a charity we can continue to help cats and kittens in need thanks to the donations we receive at fundraising events from generous members of the public. Our Fundraising Event Helpers have the exciting and varied role of helping at local fundraising events - such as cakes sales, barn dances, quiz nights – and everything in between!

Cat sponsorship volunteer

Our volunteers help collect fun and informative pictures, videos and information about the cats and kittens in our sponsored pens. Cats Protection helps around 200,000 cats and kittens every year and we just couldn’t do this without our supporters who raise over an amazing £4 million a year for the kitty! By volunteering in this rewarding role you will not only get to spend time directly with cats and kittens, you will help connect our supporters with the great work we do and more importantly update them on our amazing sponsor felines!
