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 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.

They directly help our feline friends by raising awareness of the fantastic ways Cats Protection helps cats in need. By raising our profile they help us raise the funds we need to continue our work, raise awareness of adopting a cat, help promote neutering and make sure as many people as possible learn more about feline welfare.

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.

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.
