Volunteers Urgently Needed

Volunteers are absolutely vital to the ongoing success of our branch.

Our charity shop:
at 184 Bramford Lane, Ipswich, is open Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm 01473 742226.
 It sells everything from books, bric-a-brac and clothes to jewellery and shoes. Volunteers are always needed to assist with serving customers, sorting donations, ironing and so much more. 

Cat Fosterers: Vital to the operation of our branch, fosterers care for the cats we take in until a permanent home is found for them. We can install high spec cat pens in your garden (they don't take up that much space - ask to see one if you're unsure). Or you can foster in a dedicated room in your home. Foster cats must be kept indoors and separate from other pets in the home, both for their own safety and that of your pets. The branch pays for food, litter, all equipment and veterinary fees for your foster cats. Fostering will cost you nothing but your time. Advice and support from the rest of the team is always available. For more information email Dave on davidericsmith13@sky.com
Our lists are frequently closed to incoming cats as we do not have sufficient fosterers to take these needy animals inAnd every year the demand grows.
Feral cat trapping: Some areas have colonies of feral cats that Cats Protection may be able to help with. We are prepared to trap, blood test, neuter then return them to site. Cats Protection will however remove very young kittens, which can be socialised and re-homed where possible. If you own a stable / barns / free holding and would like a rodent controller,  a feral cat could be for you. Please contact Dave on 0345 371 2069 or davidericsmith13@sky.com

Administration Volunteer

Thousands of cats each year rely on the help of animal charities because they have been abandoned, they have strayed or because there has been a change in their owner’s circumstances. Becoming an administration volunteer is just one way you can help improve the lives of cats in your local community. Our administration volunteers help provide vital support to our volunteer groups and teams across Cats Protection. They help keep up to date records of the number of cats that have been rehomed, collate supporter details and send out newsletters. This could be the perfect volunteer role if you have administrative experience, a passion for cats, or both!

Closing date: 03 Feb 2018
