Volunteering



Never question the value of volunteers. Noah's Ark was built by volunteers. Titanic was built by professionals!


We are a small family of fantastic volunteers dedicated to finding new and loving homes for the cats in our care.

Volunteering is a positive thing to do. You will make new friends, develop new skills and know that you are making a difference to the lives of both cats and people. Training and ongoing support is provided for all our volunteers. 

If you have any special skills that you think we could make use of with our work, then please get in touch today. A chat costs nothing and it could lead both of us on a new chapter!

Unfortunately we are not able to support anyone under the age of 16 who wishes to carry out work experience or those taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.



Fosterer Volunteer

Across the UK many of our feline friends are cared for by volunteer fosterers who provide a stable, safe and loving environment in their homes or in purpose built pens in their gardens. They provide vital hands on care and accommodation to stray, abandoned cats or cats whose owners could sadly no longer keep them, and are part of a dedicated team of volunteers committed to finding new homes for cats in need. Most of our fosterers care for one or two cats at a time and enjoy providing lots of TLC to those cats which have been pre-loved or have had a difficult start in life. Some of our fosterers look after new mums and kittens and provide round the clock care to new-borns with tummies to fill and lots to learn. No matter what type of cats they have in care our fosterers provide the best start to the next stage of their lives.

Website Editor Volunteer

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.

Recruitment Support Volunteer

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats each year and the majority of these success stories are thanks to the dedication and effort of our passionate volunteers. Our recruitment support volunteers help local volunteer groups and teams by promoting volunteer vacancies, matching passionate cat loving volunteers to vacancies and informing potential volunteers about the variety of volunteer roles available at Cats Protection.
