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. Please look at our news page for information about temporary kitten fostering - a delight-filled activity!

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.

Please have a look at our Volunteering leaflet for more background information.

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.

Co-ordinator Volunteer

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to our dedicated and passionate volunteer groups. We have over 250 branches across the UK, all of which help our feline friends in different ways. Branches 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 co-ordinators lead their local team by supporting and managing volunteers within their group, maintaining communications with both volunteers and staff, and helping promote a positive and professional image of Cats Protection.

Neutering team leader 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.
