Cat Welfare

    used to house the cats that you will be caring for.  This is solely for the purpose of keeping any infection the cat may
    have confined, so that it will not infect the whole house.  Everything else will be provided ... including the cats!

  • Home Visitors - Bracknell, Wokingham and other areas in our region
    Home visitors are required in the Bracknell and Wokingham areas, and to cover the extended area of
    Maidenhead, Slough and Windsor to carry out visits to homes of prospective new owners

Please contact us if you are interested.  All volunteers must become a member of the branch.

Online fundraising volunteer

As a charity we are only able to help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to the donations we receive from generous members of the public. Our online fundraisers help our volunteer groups raise vital funds by organising online sales of goods, using social media to encourage donations and any other innovative ways to raise funds they can think of! Making a difference can mean as little as raising 18p, which is enough to feed one cat in our care for a day.


Closing date: 24 Dec 2017
Fundraising volunteer

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!

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. 


Closing date: 24 Dec 2017
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.

Membership Volunteer

As a charity we are able to help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to donations we receive from our loyal supporters. Our fundraising membership volunteers play an important role in raising the funds needed for us to continue to help our feline friends in need by acting as the link between our volunteer groups and local supporters. They actively promote our local membership schemes, help raise vital funds and make sure as many people as possible are aware of the valuable work we do to help cats.
