Volunteering

This opportunity is suitable for Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh participants.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity and our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Cats are at the centre of everything we do and our objectives are: homing, neutering and educating people about cats and their care.

We help thousands of cats across the UK each year thanks to our network of dedicated volunteers, staff and supporters.

Thinking of volunteering for North Ayrshire Cats Protection??

We foster our cats in care at foster homes in the North Ayrshire area.  Access to a car is an advantage as our cat pens are dotted about North Ayrshire.

We have around 30 active volunteers within the branch doing a wide range of activities to ensure the smooth running of the branch. 

A lot of our cat care work is done independently, with interaction with other volunteers at events such as our adoption shows, branch meetings and fundraising events.

We meet once every 2nd month as a team, and outwith that we rely on text and emails to each other to ensure that the needs of the cats are met, together with all the other work required to ensure that the branch is running to meet the needs of the cats in our area.

We do not have an adoption centre, or one location from which the cats and the branch are based.  All our cats are fostered with other volunteers within the branch.

Please look below at the current opportunities within the branch.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Due to the volume of cat care, and everyone involved within the branch are volunteers, we will respond to applicants as soon as we can.

Many thanks.
