Volunteering

We are always looking for new volunteers to help us but currently have a number of volunteer positions which need to be filled. Please note this work is voluntary and therefore unpaid, but ALL expenses such as petrol, telephone calls, stamps, cat food, litter, equipment etc are all covered by us.

Fundraisers
Would you like to help raise money for our branch?  Are you happy to meet the public and sell cat goods or hold a collection tin from time to time? Have a look at our Being a fundraiser page.

Fosterers
Do you love getting hands on with cats? Are you caring, but not overly sentimental, with a good working knowledge of cat welfare? Are you not afraid to get your hands dirty, happy to deal with the public, to maintain national standards, and do you understand that cats in care can need attention outside of normal hours?

  • Yes? Then maybe you could help as a Fosterer! This very rewarding role isn’t just about stroking cats, its about looking after them night and day, and includes showing cats to the public, talking to potential owners about cat welfare, keeping up to date records, and transporting cats to the vet as and when required.

  • At the moment we're looking for both indoor and outdoor fosterers.  Have a look at our Have you considered being a cat fosterer? page for more information.

  If you're interested in any of these volunteer roles, please email us at basingstoke-cats@hotmil.co.uk.

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.

Our newsletter editor volunteers tap into the nations love for cats, which helps raise our profile across the UK. They source, capture and share exciting photos, images and stories relevant to the varied and exciting things we do at Cats Protection to help our feline friends. A higher profile can help us raise funds, promote adopting a cat, help promote neutering and encourage as many people as possible to learn about feline welfare.
