Cat sponsorship volunteer

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.


A bit about this role


Our volunteers help collect fun and informative pictures, videos and information about the cats and kittens in our sponsored pens.


Cats Protection helps around 200,000 cats and kittens every year and we just couldn’t do this without our supporters who raise over an amazing £4 million a year for the kitty! By volunteering in this rewarding role you will not only get to spend time directly with cats and kittens, you will help connect our supporters with the great work we do and more importantly update them on our amazing sponsor felines!


What can you expect to be doing?


  • Taking photos and videos of the cat/s or kittens in the sponsor pen

  • Gathering information and case studies about the cat/s or kittens in the sponsor pen

  • Sending content and liaising with the Direct Marketing team who will send the information to cat pen sponsors or use in national fundraising campaigns to help raise funds

  • Making sure sponsorship materials (leaflets, signs, posters) are stocked and replaced at the centres when needed
