If you love cats and would like to help with any aspect of our work in Teesside, please consider getting in touch with us.
We understand that you may only want to 'dip your toe in' first to test the water and that's fine with us. We don't expect people to jump in with both feet. If you would like to commit more time we will support you with a full induction and training opportunities.
Areas to consider; transport, publicity, fundraising shops, fostering, digital photography of cats/kittens, (for our web pages on our CP website, facebook and other cat related sites)


We would be delighted to hear from people in our area that have a room spare in which they would consider fostering a cat or kitten for us. All equipment, food, litter and any veterinary care required would be provided by the branch. You could also play a part in the rehoming of your visitors if you would like to. You would not have to take phone calls, find homes or vet prospective homes.

We never seem to have enough spaces for the cats and kittens that need our help and fostering is a rewarding experience.

We can be contacted by calling: 03000121212 

Treasurer Volunteer

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats each year thanks to our dedicated and passionate volunteer groups and teams, all of which help our feline friends in a 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 treasurers maintain the finances of local groups and teams, ensuring they hold the funds needed to continue their vital work. Cats Protection relies solely on donations from generous members of the public, and our volunteer treasurers help make sure these funds are spent in the most effective way.

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.

Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) Volunteer

Unfortunately thousands of cats each year are abandoned or have strayed and rely on charities like Cats Protection for help. Becoming a TNR volunteer is one way you can make a real difference to cats in your local area. Our TNR volunteers help reduce the number of feral cats by raising awareness of our TNR programmes, setting humane traps to safely capture cats, taking them to local vets to be neutered, and hopefully returning them back to their territory. Local TNR programmes are crucial, as feral and abandoned cats present a huge challenge for communities across the UK.

Trap, Neuter, Return Lead volunteer

As a trap, neuter and return (TNR) lead volunteer you will make a vital contribution to maintaining a healthy population of feral and community cats and will help alleviate cat welfare and community problems caused by uncontrolled cat populations. You will lead a team of TNR volunteers in your local area, who in turn will help reduce the number of unwanted cats.
