The Glasgow branch is always looking for volunteers to help us with our work. Here are just some of the volunteering opportunities that we currently have available.
- Cat and Kitten Fosterers. As our branch do not operate from a main centre, all the cats in our care are looked after by fosterers on a short-term basis until a permanent home can be found. Fostering is a very rewarding experience and the branch provides all the food, litter, toys, scratch posts and covers vet bills - all we ask is for your time to care for the cat. Please note that your own transport is essential when fostering to enable you to take cats to the vets for routine vaccinations, etc. All the cats in our care must be looked after to Cats Protection standards. For more details on this role please see the link 'Role Profile - Cat and Kitten Fosterer' in the left-hand sidebar.
- Home Visitors. Needed in all areas of Glasgow. If you are available to do one visit a month or 5, it would be great to hear from you! Home visits are vital to assess what type of cat would best settle in a particular home. This role entails arranging a convenient time to visit the prospective owner within their home and, with the aid of a checklist, assessing whether the home is suitable for an indoor/outdoor cat or kitten.
- Drivers. Drivers are required to collect cats from their old homes, take them to their new homes, take deliveries to food and litter to fosterers, take cats to the vet, etc. Please note that due to the requirements of the role you will need a driving licence to volunteer for this position.
- Fundraisers. We always need enthusiastic people who would like to work with our Fundraising Officer to help with raising funds to support the cats in our care.
