Volunteering

Do you love cats? Would you like to make a difference to the lives of cats and kittens in Walsall? 

Without volunteers, Walsall Borough Cats Protection simply wouldn't exist. Our amazing, friendly volunteers are a diverse group with a shared love of cats who fit volunteering around their home lives and personal commitments. Whether minutes or months, days or decades, every moment of volunteering matters, helping to improve the lives of the cats and kittens in the local community. 

Volunteering at Walsall Borough Cats Protection

We're often looking to welcome new volunteers to our team. Full support, guidance and role-specific training is provided, and we reimburse out of pocket expenses. Our volunteers love what they do and we're confident you will too. As well as meeting great people and helping the cats of Walsall, you'll enjoy practical benefits such as discounted pet insurance.

If you're interested in volunteering or fostering to help cats and kittens in Walsall, we'd love to hear from you. Just email us and one of our committee members will be in touch.

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.
