Volunteering

Important

Thank you for visiting our Volunteering webpages. We are heartened that so many cat lovers across the UK are considering how they can be of help to our feline friends.

Just at the moment we are considering how best to respond to the current situation while focusing on cats in our care and keeping our current volunteers safe. While we do that we are temporarily suspending volunteer recruitment

Please do keep visiting our website as we develop our plans and keep safe and well.

You can still contact volunteering@cats.org.uk if you have a volunteering query.


Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) Volunteer

Unfortunately thousands of cats each year are abandoned or have strayed and rely on charities like Cats Protection for help. Becoming a TNR volunteer is one way you can make a real difference to cats in your local area. Our TNR volunteers help reduce the number of feral cats by raising awareness of our TNR programmes, setting humane traps to safely capture cats, taking them to local vets to be neutered, and hopefully returning them back to their territory. Local TNR programmes are crucial, as feral and abandoned cats present a huge challenge for communities across the UK.

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.

Induction Support Volunteer

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats each year and the majority of these success stories are thanks to the dedication and effort of our passionate volunteers. Our induction support volunteers help volunteer groups and teams by providing support to new team members. They make sure new volunteers are happy and confident in their various roles and are in turn able to effectively help cats and kittens in need.
