Volunteering

South Birmingham Cats Protection are currently recruiting new volunteers.

The following opportunities are available.

TRAPPERS

The South Birmingham Branch of  Cats Protection are currently in need of volunteer trappers to help with Trap, Neuter/Spay & Return, which involves capturing feral cats & helping them by getting them Neutered/Spayed & then returning them to their environment. The Feral Cat population is sadly growing and we therefore require assistance in this area.

FOSTERERS


We are currently looking to expand our team of volunteer cat fosterers.

As a fosterer you will be directly helping cats and kittens in need; providing them with hands on care and working with others to rehome them, ultimately, providing them with a second chance of a happy and healthy life.

If you have a spare room and would like the opportunity to help cats and kittens by fosterering short term then we would like to hear from you.


All expenses including veterinary treatment, food and litter will be met by Cats Protection. Fosterers provide the time, patience and love.




If you could help the branch carry on this vital work then please contact us on 0345 371 1854 or email southbhamcp@virginmedia.com


 

Cats Protection helps thousands of cats across the UK each year thanks to our network of dedicated volunteers.

BUT, please note,the South Birmingham Branch of Cats Protection does not have a central base.
All volunteers are adults who work from their own homes, therefore, we cannot take part in youth training schemes or offer work experience.
Transport Volunteer

Have you got four wheels that could help our four-legged feline friends? Our transport volunteers provide vital assistance to our teams and volunteer groups in the local area by transporting equipment, litter, food, money – and even cats! They have the essential role of connecting our network of volunteers, sites, vets and supporters. Without the passionate and committed teams of volunteers across Cats Protection, we wouldn’t be able to help the thousands of cats and kittens each year that rely on us for help.

Re-homing Team Leader Volunteer

At Cats Protection we will continue to find new homes for cats and kittens in need until our work around information, education and neutering reduces the long-term need for homing. Life in a rescue environment is never ideal for any cat compared to a loving home. Our rehoming team leaders support a team of volunteer home visitors who collectively play an important part in matching our feline friends with their new families.

Fosterer Volunteer

Across the UK many of our feline friends are cared for by volunteer fosterers who provide a stable, safe and loving environment in their homes or in purpose built pens in their gardens. They provide vital hands on care and accommodation to stray, abandoned cats or cats whose owners could sadly no longer keep them, and are part of a dedicated team of volunteers committed to finding new homes for cats in need. Most of our fosterers care for one or two cats at a time and enjoy providing lots of TLC to those cats which have been pre-loved or have had a difficult start in life. Some of our fosterers look after new mums and kittens and provide round the clock care to new-borns with tummies to fill and lots to learn. No matter what type of cats they have in care our fosterers provide the best start to the next stage of their lives.

Branch Secretary Volunteer

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to our dedicated volunteer groups. These groups of passionate individuals all help our feline friends in different ways. They take in stray and abandoned cats and ensure they receive the veterinary care and attention they deserve, help raise funds, promote neutering and help spread cat welfare messages. Our volunteer secretaries provide the support that helps our volunteer groups run smoothly. They make a real difference to the lives of our feline friends by helping maintain positive communications, supporting others, promoting the work of Cats Protection and signposting queries from members of the public.
