Become a volunteer

woman with catWe’re always looking for volunteers living in area to become cat fosterers.

There are some great benefits to being a Paws Protect Volunteer Fosterer.

Here are just some of them:

• You’ll be helping a family and their cats to escape an abusive environment

• You’ll have the enjoyment of caring for a cat without a lifetime commitment

• You’ll have the opportunity to develop new skills and expand your knowledge of cat welfare

• You’ll have all food and expenses covered by the Paws Protect project


Here is some of the feedback we've received from our volunteer fosterers:

"We really wanted a pet but it wasn't feasible to move with it. The Paws Protect scheme allows for the best of both worlds we get to love and take care of a pet, but without the cost and permanent commitment of ownership."

"I'm really happy to be part of this programme. It is lovely when owners are reunited with their pets following difficult circumstances, and it is really rewarding to feel part of that."

"As a previous victim of domestic abuse, it feels as if I'm giving something back. Making a positive difference to someone's life is of great value to me."
