Volunteering

Have you got what it takes to help? Do any of the following describe you?

Do you love getting hands on with cats? Are you caring but not overly sentimental, with a good working knowledge of cat welfare? Are you not afraid to get your hands dirty, happy to deal with the public, prepared to work to national standards, and do you understand that cats in care need attention outside of normal hours?

Yes? Then maybe you could help! A fosterer's role is very rewarding, and it isn't just about stroking cats, it's about looking after them as and when required, whilst we find them a loving home. Fostering is normally done in a purpose built cat cabin, located in your own garden (which of course will be provided to you), though spare rooms can easily be adapted for indoor fostering.

Do you just want to make a difference, to ensure all cats are homed to the right places, or do you have transport and a few hours to spare? Maybe you just love animals and want to use some of your spare time to benefit cats and kittens in your area?
Sounds like you? Then there are lots of ways that you could help, such as home-checking, fundraising, or transporting goods locally. In fact, there's so many ways you can add value and make a real difference, just by offering a few hours of your time!

Interested? Then please call today! Thanks!

Transport Volunteer

Our transport volunteers help our teams and volunteer groups move equipment, litter, food, money – and even cats! They have the vital role of connecting our network of volunteers, sites, vets and donors. Without them we wouldn’t be able to help the thousands of cats each year that rely on us as they enable our volunteer groups and teams to effectively help our feline friends.

Volunteer publicity team leader

Our publicity team leaders have the important role of supporting a wider team of publicity volunteers. As a team our publicity volunteers collectively keep members of the public informed of the vital and varied ways we help our feline friends in need. Raising awareness is crucial to us being able to help the thousands of cats and kittens each year that rely on us. A higher profile can help raise funds, raise awareness of adopting a cat, promote neutering and encourage as many people as possible to learn about feline welfare.

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.

Volunteer fosterer

Across Cats Protection there are thousands of cats and kittens needing temporary homes until they find their forever families. Many of our feline friends are cared for by volunteer fosterers in their homes or in purpose built pens in their gardens. Most of our volunteer fosterers care for one or two cats at a time, which makes a huge difference and gives these cats a second chance at a happy life. They provide vital hands on care and accommodation to stray, abandoned or injured cats and are part of a dedicated team of volunteers committed to finding new homes for cats in need.

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!
