How our volunteers see their work with Cats Protection

‘Volunteering for Cats Protection is a fun and rewarding experience, particularly if you have a skill that would benefit the charity or would like to develop new skills by taking on a fresh challenge. Our volunteers gain a great deal of satisfaction helping cats get a second chance in life.’

‘My driving force is to work towards a day when people take responsibility for the moggy. If the branch can help one tiny kitten, one injured cat or neuter one feral then together we have made a difference.’

‘I thoroughly enjoy seeing a group from diverse backgrounds working together to achieve a common goal. I also greatly admire the volunteers that sacrifice their time to make a change.’

As a small branch we are always in need of volunteers and below is a list of jobs we currently have vacancies for:

Fosterers
Fundraisers to help at events
Bakers (a food safety qualification would be helpful)
Collector and distributor of coin collection boxes from/to shops etc.
Photographer and printer of photos of cats in our care for rehoming notices
Someone with IT experience to help with our website and Facebook page (a good standard of literacy is necessary).
Someone to print and put up posters to advertise fundraising events
Welfare Officer
Homing Officer

If you are interested in any of these roles, please contact us via the ‘Contact Us’ page or call 01726 817837.

Once you have decided to join our team of volunteers you will be invited to have an informal chat.  This is not only a chance for you to learn what we do but for us to see what role you would like to play in our organisation and what skills and experience you have which will benefit the Branch.



Branch team leader volunteer

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to our dedicated and passionate volunteer groups. We have over 250 branches across the UK, all of which help our feline friends in different ways. Branches 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 branch team leader volunteers lead their local team by supporting and managing volunteers within their group, maintaining communications with both volunteers and staff, and helping promote a positive and professional image of Cats Protection.
