We are always on the look out for more volunteers to help us and there are several ways you can do this
Help in our shop - Please call in and speak to the Manager or phone the shop on 01303 264285.
Become a fosterer - Maybe you have a spare room where you could care for a mum and kittens or a single cat for a few weeks until we find new homes for them. We pay all expenses and provide you with food and litter for the cats. If you find that fostering is really for you then we can discuss erecting a pen in your garden should you wish.
Relief telephone cover - Maybe you are good on the telephone and have a sympathetic ear. We need holiday relief for our Lost and Found Cat Search line. See our separate Lost and Found section
Poster distribution - We need people in all areas to put up posters of the cats once a month for us in vets and shop windows. We can pay you basic fuel costs.
Home Visitors - as all our cats have had a bad start in life, we 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 always welcome and full training and support will be given.
Cats' Protection School and community speakers - Do you enjoy public speaking and like talking to children? We could do with people to go to local schools and organisations to give talks and create awareness of us and our work. We can supply you with talk scripts, educational DVD's and other materials you may need.
Make items to sell - Maybe you like making things? We can always make use of home made things to sell in our shop. Anything from cards to candles, we can sell it all in our shop.
However much or little time you feel you have to spare, your help will always be welcomed. Be it on a regular, occasional or one-off basis. We really would love to hear from you.
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!

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.
