Volunteering

Cats Protection helps thousands of cats across the UK each year thanks to our network of dedicated Volunteers.
St Helens Cats Protection has been rescuing cats and kittens in the Merseyside and Cheshire areas for many years now and we have had great success in the rehoming, neutering, and general welfare of our feline community.

If you have any spare time and would like to help out at the St Helens Adoption Centre please contact Beni at the centre by e-mail northwest.volunteer@cats.org.uk phone 01744 817718 or pop along and visit us during our opening hours of 11am - 3pm to find out more about the opportunities we have available.

If you are looking for a school/college/university work experience placement then please call the Centre on 01744 817718 or call in any day between 11am – 3pm to discuss this further.  We will try to accommodate where we can but please be aware that as a small Centre we only have availability for a limited number of students.  All students applying for a placement will be asked to attend a short interview before any offer of a placement is confirmed.  
Cat Care Volunteer

Across Cats Protection our feline friends looking for new homes are cared for either at our adoption centres, by volunteer fosterers in their own homes or in purpose built pens in their gardens. Our cat care volunteers are part of a passionate team that look after and meet the needs of cats whilst they are in our care. This is an exciting role for cat lovers, as our cat care volunteers get to spend time directly with the cats when cleaning their pens, helping with feeding and when enriching their lives before they find their forever homes.

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.
