Get a new lease of life by volunteering for Cats Protection

Posted 19th June 2023

Cats Protection’s Milton Keynes Branch is urging people who are looking to ‘spice up their life’ to volunteer for the charity.

The branch, part of the UK’s leading cat welfare charity that helps around 200,000 cats and kittens each year, says volunteering helps individuals to participate in interesting activities, widen their social circle and get a lot of satisfaction helping unwanted cats.

The branch is currently crying out for more volunteers to join their team so they can continue doing the work they love, in particular cat fosterers.

Volunteer fosterer Nick said “being a cat foster for Cats Protection is an immensely rewarding journey. It’s a chance to make a difference in the lives of these vulnerable cats, offering them a second chance and a loving environment. The bonds formed, the personal growth experienced, and the joy of witnessing their successful adoptions make every moment worthwhile.”

Cat fostering is hands-on cat welfare work looking after felines on a short-term basis, either in cat pens in their garden or a spare room in their home.

Committee volunteer Belle O’Connor said “The current demand on the branch’s resources are at an all time high, with long waiting lists the need for more fosterers is growing daily. Cat fosterers play an important role by giving cats a temporary home whilst they wait for their forever home. The charity provides all the training and assistance you need and the branch is full of supportive fellow volunteers.”
