At Cats Protection we welcome volunteers with open arms, no matter how much time you can give, there’s a place for you with us!

We wouldn’t be here without the amazing support of our volunteers. Whether you’re looking to volunteer in a hands-on role with the cats we help, want to volunteer in one of our charity shops or are looking for a different kind of volunteering role.

Everything we do is designed to create and maintain a safe, positive and inclusive environment for everyone. Cats Protection is committed to safeguarding children, adults at risk and all those that we come into contact with as part of our activities.
