Volunteering


We currently have a range of volunteering opportunities available within the branch. Have a look below to see examples of what you could be doing to help cats in your area.

We need help with all aspects of cat welfare, so if you only have a little time there are still things you could do, like transporting cats to and from fosterers and vets and helping with admin/paperwork. For more information please look at our cat welfare volunteers page.

If direct contact with cats is more your thing, we are always looking for indoor and outdoor fosterers to help us look after more cats and kittens in need.

We always need people to help in our Cats Protection shop in Pydar Street, Truro. It is a very pleasant place to spend time - a happy band of volunteers helping to raise money to help Cornish cats.  You can see our Shop Manager Julie here with Volunteer Thomas who is receiving an award.

Please have a look at our Volunteering page to find out more.

If you think you might be interested in helping us please contact us on 01872 463466 and we will ring you back for a chat. We can then tell you a bit more about us and how you can get involved.

Fundraising Team Leader 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 team leaders have the exciting and varied role of inspiring our fundraising volunteers to plan and deliver local fundraising events. Using their passion and imagination, they oversee a small team of fundraising volunteers who come together to raise the vital funds needed to cover costs such as veterinary bills and food. Our fundraising team leaders support their team of volunteers in all aspects of their roles, making sure our volunteers are happy, confident and supported.

Neutering team lead volunteer

At Cats Protection we passionately believe that neutering cats before they can breed is an essential part of cat ownership and without neutering the UK’s cat population would quickly get out of control. Our neutering team lead volunteers help spread positive neutering messages and make it easier for owners on low incomes to get their cats neutered. They help raise awareness of the benefits of neutering, promote our neutering schemes and lead and support a team of neutering volunteers.

Cat Welfare Team Leader Volunteer

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. Our Cat Welfare Team Leaders have the important role of coordinating, encouraging and supporting teams of fosterer volunteers and cat care volunteers. They help make sure 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.
