Volunteer Opportunities

We welcome all new volunteers to help with our branch activities. We also need more fosterers to help care for our rescued cats and kittens on a short term basis until a permanent home can be found for them. Fostering can be done inside the home if you have a suitable room, or if you have space in your garden we can supply an outside cabin and run (see picture). The branch pays for all the food and equipment needed and there is always plenty of advice, support and training in cat/kitten care. Cat and kitten fosterers can normally combine work and fostering without any problems.

Access to a car is needed for routine trips to the vet for check-ups and vaccinations etc. Fostering is very rewarding and the more fosterers we have the more cats we are able to help. If you would like more information please ring and have a chat with our Homing and Welfare Officer.   

We are also looking for people who can help us with fundraising and could spare some time to help with our fundraising events.

We would love to hear from you if you think you may be able to offer help.


Social media volunteer

Social media and cats go hand in hand, and our social media volunteers use their passion and knowledge of social media to promote the activities of local volunteer groups and teams though various channels. This is a volunteer role that can be done from home, on the train or even from the sofa! Our social media volunteers directly help our feline friends by helping raise awareness of Cats Protection.  A higher profile can help us raise the funds we need for our work, ensure people know they can adopt a cat from us, help promote neutering and help as many people as possible learn more about feline welfare.

Volunteer website editor

Our volunteer website editors promote the activities of our local volunteer groups and teams by helping keep their websites relevant, exciting and engaging for members of the public. Local websites are often the first place members of the public will look to find out more about Cats Protection. A positive local profile can help raise funds, promote adopting a cat, promote neutering and make sure as many people as possible learn about feline welfare.
