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:

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.

Fundraising volunteer

As a charity we are able to help thousands of cats each year thanks to the generous donations we receive from members of the public. Our fundraising volunteers use their passion for cats and people to raise the vital funds needed to help more cats and kittens in need. As a fundraising volunteer we want to support you to fundraise in whatever way suits you best – whether that’s organising a fundraising event, fundraising online, promoting fundraising activities on social media, completing administration or supporting the development of new fundraising ideas! Whatever your skill set, this could be the role for you!

Transport Volunteer

If you enjoy driving and would love to use those skills to help our cats, this could be the role for you. Our transport volunteers provide vital assistance to our teams and volunteer groups in the local area by transporting equipment, litter, food – 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.
