We use volunteers to help us give the best care possible for all our centre's resident cats. Our cat care volunteers will always have the support of our cat care staff who appreciate and value the help that volunteers give them and our cats.

Our pens need cleaning daily and once a cat has been rehomed, the pen needs a thorough disinfect so it is ready for the next cat that comes into our care. This is hard work, but crucial for the cats and kittens here at the centre. 

Our cats like the volunteers who help us feed them their breakfast or tea! 

The cats and kittens at the centre also needs socialising and we place a great importance in this. It enables them to settle quickly, which in turn improves their chances of being adopted. Cat socialisers spend time with the cats, particularly those who are nervous. Simply sitting down with our more scaredy cats helps them to know people are their friends.  Please be aware if you would like to just do socialisation this is limited to week days only as the cats get a lot of attention from vistors at the weekend.

We have lots of other jobs needing willing volunteers throughout the centre.  We will tell you all about these at the induction.  We also welcome young people volunteering at the centre as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award.

All our cat care volunteers need to attend an induction before they start volunteering with us.

We are currently updating how we recruit and manage volunteers. If you would like to volunteer at the centre please check our website in 2019 where we will be advertising all our current vacancies. Thank you.
