Volunteering

Give a little time make a big difference

Cats Protection also welcomes volunteers with open arms, whether you are young or old, male or female, there's a place for you with us!

If you can volunteer for up to three hours a week in your spare time, this will make all the difference to how much we can achieve and help more needy cats get a second chance of Happiness.

People person?
If you are good with people you could be an ideal  volunteer for visiting the homes of prospective new cat owners.You could also be a great help at fundraising  events.
Love to work with cats?
If you really want to get close to the cats and kittens in our care, there are always several hands-on roles available. These range from taking care of them on a day-to-day basis, to transporting them to their new homes or the vet. Maybe you're a lover of the great outdoors? If so, you could help with trapping ferals for our trap, neuter and release programme and combine your love of nature and cats to great effect

Home Visitors
As many of our cats have had a bad start in life, we therefore like to carry out a home visit before we place each cat just to be sure everyone is happy with the arrangement. New home visitors are now needed and full training and support will be given, together with out of pocket expenses i.e. travelling.
 
Volunteers should live in any of the following post code areas NR30- NR35.
Your own enthusiasm will be welcomed.

If you are interested in doing any volunteering work for our branch then please fill in the form below or email us at recruitment@angliacoastal.cats.org.uk  and tell us about yourself and what you would like to get involved with. The more information you give us the better, as it will allow us to suggest roles that match your skills and background.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Volunteer

Unfortunately thousands of cats each year are abandoned or have strayed and rely on charities like Cats Protection for help. Becoming a TNR volunteer is one way you can make a real difference to cats in your local area. Our TNR volunteers help reduce the number of feral cats by raising awareness of our TNR programmes, setting humane traps to safely capture cats, taking them to local vets to be neutered, and hopefully returning them back to their territory. Local TNR programmes are crucial, as feral and abandoned cats present a huge challenge for communities across the UK.

Volunteer home visitor

Across Cats Protection there are thousands of cats and kittens looking for new and loving homes at any one time. Our volunteer home visitors support a local volunteer group by helping find our feline friends happy, caring and suitable homes. They communicate with potential adopters, match cats and kittens with new homes and provide support to new cat owners. This is a rewarding role, as our volunteer home visitors play a vital part in helping cats and kittens find their perfect forever homes.

Fundraising volunteer

As a charity we rely on funds donated by generous members of the public to continue to help cats and kittens in need. Our fundraising volunteers are part of a passionate team that help raise funds to help our feline friends in need. They help plan and deliver exciting and varied fundraising events, which can be anything from craft fairs, cake sales, sponsored abseils – and anything in between!
