I’ve been volunteering for Cats Protection for the last year and it has been an amazing experience. I love cats and wanted to help out in any way I could. That was why I chose to be involved in the education aspect of this magnificent charity. Valeria Higgins, Education Volunteer.

Volunteering for Cats Protection has given me the opportunity to make a real difference to lives, not only for the cats that we rescue but also to the people that we meet along the way. Julie Seymour, Mid-Warwickshire Branch.

I believe in doing what you can, when you can. Don't wait until you have more time - that day may never come. Start making a difference now! Heather Cook, Woking & District Branch.

It is fab to be part of a team which creates so many happy endings.
Julia Dallosso, Caterham, Redhill and East Surrey Branch.

My role as branch fundraiser has taken me to many places and got me involved in all sorts of things that I would never have considered doing before. It can be hard work, but is tremendous fun too and definitely worth a try. Julie Seymour, Mid-Warwickshire Branch.

As a fosterer I get such pleasure in knowing that what I do makes a huge difference to the welfare of the cats and kittens that come into my care. Seeing them go to lovely new homes is one of the greatest rewards of all. Mary Wood, Cheltenham Branch.

 I volunteer as a fundraiser for Cats Protection Bridgend Adoption Centre, because I see the wonderful work they do there looking after the cats. They know all their names, their backgrounds and exactly what type of home they need – for example no dogs or an indoor home. I feel so proud to be part of that wonderful place. Sue John, Friends of Bridgend Adoption Centre


We are currently looking for the following people:
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. 

Closing date: 10 Dec 2017
Online fundraising volunteer

As a charity we are only able to help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to the donations we receive from generous members of the public. Our online fundraisers help our volunteer groups raise vital funds by organising online sales of goods, using social media to encourage donations and any other innovative ways to raise funds they can think of! Making a difference can mean as little as raising 18p, which is enough to feed one cat in our care for a day.

Closing date: 10 Dec 2017
Lost and Found Cats Volunteer

Unfortunately our feline friends can occasionally stray or get lost, which can be extremely distressing for their owners. Our lost and found volunteers are passionate about reuniting lost cats and bringing families back together. They help cats and their owners by advertising lost cats and providing support, advice and guidance to people searching for their cats. 

Closing date: 10 Dec 2017
Cat Admissions Volunteer

At Cats Protection we will continue to find new and loving homes for cats and kittens until our work around information, education and neutering reduces the long-term need for homing. Life in a rescue environment is not ideal for any cat compared with a warm, loving home. Our cat admissions volunteers help our volunteer groups and teams admit cats into our care in the most effective way possible, making the process as easy and stress free for both people and our feline friends alike. 

Closing date: 10 Dec 2017
