Practical Help

If you can spare some time to help our cause, it is greatly appreciated. Even if it is only a short amount of time it all helps and below are examples of the kind of support we need. Many require very little involvement.


Help on a Stall, Jumble Stall or Bazaar 

Many of our branches attend local fairs and help on the day is always appreciated.  You can assist with manning the stall, helping to transport goods to and from the event or by storing boxes of bric-a-brac between fairs.


“Bring and Buy's”, Quiz Evenings, Auctions, Garden Parties etc

These events can often raise considerable sums in comparatively little time. Collecting boxes and literature are available on request.


Collect or make goods for us

Unwanted gifts of any kind, good quality bric-a-brac, books, toys and hand-made items are always gratefully received. Some branches can use jumble and second-hand clothes.


Sponsor a stall or an Advertisement

Our branches often fundraise at local fairs. Maybe you could sponsor the cost of a stall or help pay for an advertisement to find new homes for the cats in our care.

Volunteering is very rewarding, you can volunteer in many ways


Foster a Kitten / Cat

We have cats and kittens coming into our care all the time. We never kill for expediency, so fosterers are urgently needed. We usually have tame cats and kittens ready to go to homes as well as those who stay longer because they need taming or are expecting kittens, or are nursing queens.  Fostering is very rewarding. Please contact HQ, or your local branch if you are interested.


For safety, this is best done in pairs, especially at night. We have a particular need for people who drive.



All our branches are short of drivers. Lifts are needed to vets, to sites and to prospective homes to be vetted. We are usually able to refund petrol expenses if needed.
