We are looking for volunteers

As a new and fast growing charity, we are urgently looking for a range of volunteers. You may have some extra time and looking to make a difference to the lives of our feline friends, some of whom have fallen on hard times and need our help.

There are currently five main types of volunteer that we are looking for:

 

Home checkers:

You may be willing to do home visits to potential adopters to see if the home is suitable, and to potentially advise how to make a home cat-friendly. We also need people who are willing to do follow-up checks around 4-6 weeks after a cat has been rehomed.  Usually this would involve visiting people in their house; however, currently this is done remotely using video chat to prevent Coronavirus spread.

 

Fundraisers:

Perhaps you have skills or experience in fundraising and applying for grants, or you may be interested in helping out at car-boot sales.  We also need help with collecting and sorting donated items for resale.  Perhaps you enjoy raising funds by selling donated items online.  Whatever form it takes, raising funds is pivotal to the welfare of all of our cats.

 

Website content and admin:

We need help with updating the website and writing information leaflets.  If you have a flair for writing and a good understanding of cats, and have an eye for detail, please do get in touch.

 

Pen maintenance:

We need people with DIY skills to help with building and maintenance of cat pens.  If you have experience with building, woodworking, maintaining or repairing and can help please do let us know.

 

Fosterers:

If you have a garden with space for a cat pen, you may be interested in outdoor fostering.  Alternatively if you do not have pets of your own, you may want to foster indoors.  Both types of fostering are very rewarding.

 

If none of the above are what you are looking for, it is still worth talking to us to see what other help is needed. Please either complete the form below or contact us on supporters@felines1st.org
