Volunteering

We welcome new volunteers in any of our Branch activities but are particularly looking for fosterers and digital support.

FOSTERERS NEEDED
Fosterers look after homeless cats on a short-term basis until a permanent home can be found for them.  Could you foster a cat in a room in your house or do you have space in your garden for an outdoor pen?  Even if you only look after a cat once or twice a year when a fosterer is on holiday this would be helpful.  You need to be a driver and have a clean driving licence. 

Fostering cats is very rewarding and the more people we can find to do it the more cats we can help - it's as simple as that.  You can either foster indoors (kittens are always indoors) or outdoors in a purpose-built cabin fully paid for by the Branch.  Food, litter and all other supplies are delivered to your door by our fosterer liaison volunteers, and you will receive training in cat/kitten care.  There is plenty of support and advice on hand and you can take a break at any time so are not committed 365 days a year. 

Kitten fosterers need to be around much of the time to provide the care and stimulation that these little creatures need, but  adult cat fosterers can combine working and fostering without problem.   We take care to place cats appropriately and to make our fosterers lives as easy as possible by ensuring sure that everything runs smoothly.   

If you're interested we'd LOVE to hear from you on 0345 371 2739 (leave a message in Mailbox 4 and we'll get back to you within 48 hours).  We'll give you as much information as we can to help you decide if it's for you and there will be no pressure.  You might want to meet one of our existing fosterers and chat through what's involved and we can arrange that too.  What are you waiting for?!!  Get fostering!  You'll be glad you did.

DIGITAL SUPPORT
Do you have experience using a CMS, sourcing content and keeping websites up to date?  Are you able to spare an hour or two each week?  If so our Digital team would love to hear from you! 

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.

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!

Volunteer fosterer

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.
