Starting in 1927, Cats Protection has grown to become the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. on average more than 215,000 cats and kittens every year are helped through their network of over 250 volunteer-run branches and 29 adoption centres.
The Charity’s work doesn’t stop there. They also provide an array of cat care information through various publications, their website www.cats.org.uk and a helpline. All of which promote the benefits of neutering to prevent unwanted litters from being born. The campaign is to prevent these kittens being the abandoned cats of the future. The Cats Protection charity also seeks to educate people of all ages about cats and the care they need.
At Cats Protection, they help more than 215,000 cats and kittens every year thanks in no small part to their network of over 250 volunteer-run branches, 29 adoption centres and one homing centre.
These include the charity’s flagship adoption centre in Chelwood Gate, Sussex where their administrative offices can also be found.
Cats Protection is governed by a Board of Trustees which, in turn, is advised on its decisions by a Council of appointed representatives of the charity’s membership.
At Cats Protection they welcome volunteers with open arms. Whether you are young or old, male or female, there’s a place for you with us!
Why become a cats Protection volunteer?
Volunteering is the most worthwhile thing you can ever do. It gives a real sense of achievement, allows the development of new skills and the social possibilities are endless!
Much of Cats Protection’s work is carried out by volunteers in a nationwide network of branches. You can do lots of different things at a branch or adoption centre, from hands-on work with the cats as a fosterer or feline chauffeur, to public relations or fundraising. If you have a skill then they can use it!
