Volunteering

How can you help our cats?
 There are so many different ways you can help! 
 Obviously our cat pens need cleaning thoroughly every day and the occupants need feeding! This should be arranged with each individual fosterer. 
 · Transporting cats to the vet and/or return them, 
· Conducting pre-adoption home visits
· Spend time socialising with the cats in our care in order to maintain human contact (laps, cat talk, fussing over and may be a game or two) · Fostering (Cat Carers) to temporarily house cats while waiting to be homed - this can be done in a spare room. We provide everything a fosterer needs including food.  The role gives great satisfaction and quite simply, we cannot operate without Fosterers! 
· Fund raisers - If you can help with any of the following please have a chat with Debbie on 01442 217480
1. To help at stalls and jumbles
2. To help with street collections 
3. To help transport goods to events   
4. Donate unwanted items that are in good condition, bric- a -brac, unwanted gifts, cat related goods etc. Bubble wrap, wrapping paper.

The list goes on and on! 

If you would like to get involved, we'd love to hear from you.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
