A bit about this role

Our transport volunteers help our teams and volunteer groups move equipment, litter, food, money – and even cats! They have the vital role of connecting our network of volunteers, sites, vets and donors. Without them we wouldn’t be able to help the thousands of cats each year that rely on us as they enable our volunteer groups and teams to effectively help our feline friends. 


What can you expect to be doing? 

  • Collecting and delivering funds raised by the group
  • Transporting equipment, litter and cat food
  • Transporting cats to and from vets, foster homes and adoption centres
  • Transporting equipment to and from events 


What are the benefits to you and the cats?

You will develop new skills, expand your knowledge and make a significant contribution to improving the lives of cats and kittens by providing transport assistance to local volunteer groups and teams. You will meet new people, make new friends and be part of a dedicated team of volunteers.


We’re looking for someone with

  • Good organisation and time management skills
  • Knowledge of the local community
  • A full, clean driving licence and access to a vehicle
  • The ability to carry out some heavy lifting 


Time expectation 

Our transport volunteers usually spend 2 to 4 hours per week in this role, which is flexible and can be shared by more than one volunteer if needed.


Additional Information

At Cats Protection we believe our volunteers should be happy and confident in their roles. To make sure this is the case, we provide support and guidance both remotely from our National Cat Centre and face to face through our regional and local volunteer groups and teams. We also offer varied online and face to face training and have wide-ranging policies covering all aspects of volunteering. We hope the support we provide will ensure our volunteers have a great experience with Cats Protection.
