Volunteering

This opportunity is suitable for Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh participants.

We currently have a range of volunteering opportunities available within the branch. Have a look below to see examples of what you could be doing to help cats in your area.

We need help with all aspects of cat welfare, so if you only have a little time there are still things you could do, like transporting cats to and from fosterers and vets and helping with admin/paperwork. For more information please look at our cat welfare volunteers page.

If direct contact with cats is more your thing, we are always looking for indoor and outdoor fosterers to help us look after more cats and kittens in need. Please look at our news page for information about temporary kitten fostering - a delight-filled activity!

We always need people to help in our Cats Protection shop in Pydar Street, Truro. It is a very pleasant place to spend time - a happy band of volunteers helping to raise money to help Cornish cats.

Please have a look at our Volunteering leaflet for more background information.

If you think you might be interested in helping us please contact us on 01872 463466 and we will ring you back for a chat. We can then tell you a bit more about us and how you can get involved.

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.

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.
