It is often perceived because of our name, Cats Protection, every Branch is a large one with lots of space to house stray and abandoned cats. Our Group is a very small one consisting of 5 people, two of whom are fosterers, each with a double pen in their gardens. This is the only accommodation we have to house stray and abandoned cats/kittens. It is very difficult, therefore, to take in every cat when asked. The nature of the medical problems or behaviour problems some cats may have, we can have a cat in our care for many months. We sometimes require Indoor Fosterers who will look after kittens, who for some reason have no mother and require very careful nursing. Indoor kitten pens are supplied along with any food required Fundraising is a very important part of our work, as the money raised enables us to purchase equipment, and any other items, which are required to allow us to carry out our work, with the many cats and kittens who come into our care.
We are desperately looking for a Fundraising Team Leader who will perhaps manage to attract a few like minded people, who enjoy fundraising. They would be responsible for booking the events, collecting items for sale, also someone who has new ideas on how we could raise much needed funds.
We also require volunteers to help us trap and transport the many feral cats which are neutered each year. Trapping is a very important part of our volunteering work. Cats can have 3 litters of kittens per year and if not trapped and neutered, can become an out of control colony.
If you are interested in helping us in any way, please contact us on:firstname.lastname@example.org
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!

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Volunteer
Unfortunately thousands of cats each year are abandoned or have strayed and rely on charities like Cats Protection for help. Becoming a TNR volunteer is one way you can make a real difference to cats in your local area. Our TNR volunteers help reduce the number of feral cats by raising awareness of our TNR programmes, setting humane traps to safely capture cats, taking them to local vets to be neutered, and hopefully returning them back to their territory. Local TNR programmes are crucial, as feral and abandoned cats present a huge challenge for communities across the UK.
