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  (we aim to reply within 48 hours) 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.

Volunteer welfare team leader

Without the passionate and committed teams volunteers across Cats Protection we wouldn’t be able to help the thousands of cats and kittens each year that rely on us for help. Our welfare team leaders have the important role of co-ordinating, encouraging and supporting teams of volunteer fosterers and cat care volunteers. They help make sure other volunteers with direct cat care roles are happy and confident and provide advice and guidance when needed. This incredible teamwork means we are able to help more cats and kittens in need.
