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 are particularly looking for a Neutering Volunteer who could help with the admin around our £5 neutering campaign, which helps lots of people who are struggling financially in these difficult times.  The role involves dealing with email enquiries from the public, making phone calls and issuing neutering vouchers. If you feel this is something you would like to do, please contact our branch on 01872 463466 or email us at cptruroaccess@yahoo.com and we will call you back for an informal chat.

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.

Fosterer volunteer

Across the UK, many cats 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 or 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. Our fosterers carry out this role with support from their local branch or centre. Most of our fosterers care for one or two cats at a time and enjoy providing lots of TLC to those cats, who 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 newborns to give them the best start in life.

Neutering 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 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 respond to enquiries from members of the public.
