Volunteering

Telford and District Branch is run solely by volunteers who work to help cats in a variety of ways. We welcome volunteers with open arms, whether you are young or old, male or female, there's a place for you with us. As well as having the satisfaction of knowing you are working for a good cause, our volunteers also have the opportunity to learn new skills and work with like-minded people.

Not all our volunteer roles require you to have contact with our cats. There are lots of ways that you can get involved in supporting the charity, from a few hours on an occasional weekend collecting at a tin shake, helping in our shop, ‘behind the scenes’ work or even fostering. Most of our roles have flexible hours and can be fitted around your paid jobs and other commitments. You will have the opportunity to make a real difference to cats and kittens in Telford and the surrounding areas.

  • You will be able to develop new skills, expand your knowledge and use your existing expertise
  • You will meet new people, make new friendships and work as part of a dedicated team
  • You will become a key member in the UK’s largest feline charity

Donating your time and skills will make a huge difference to every cat in our care, so please have a look at our volunteering opportunities and let us know if you are interested in volunteering with the Telford & District branch. We would be very pleased to hear from you.

We are currently looking to recruit the following volunteer roles:

Welfare Team Leader Volunteer

Without the passionate and committed teams 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. Our welfare team leaders have the important role of co-ordinating, encouraging and supporting teams of volunteer fosterers and cat care volunteers. They help make sure other volunteers with direct cat care roles are happy and confident and provide advice and guidance when needed. This incredible teamwork means we are able to help more cats and kittens in need. 


Closing date: 05 Jul 2019
Re-homing Team Leader Volunteer

At Cats Protection we will continue to find new homes for cats and kittens in need until our work around information, education and neutering reduces the long-term need for homing. Life in a rescue environment is never ideal for any cat compared to a loving home. Our rehoming team leaders support a team of volunteer home visitors who collectively play an important part in matching our feline friends with their new families.
