CAT CHARITY IS ON THE PROWL IN LEICESTERSHIRE
Cats Protection has launched a volunteer appeal in Leicestershire to find kind-hearted people to play a vital role in helping cats get back on their paws. The branch is currently looking for a fundraising events team leader, a treasurer, a publicity team leader and a number of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) volunteers.
The branch relies on public donations, so the fundraising events team leader is an essential role to enable the branch to be #HereForTheCats during the current pandemic. The team leader will be involved in organising virtual fundraising events and supporting a team of volunteer fundraisers.
The volunteer treasurer will oversee funds in the kitty to enable the charity to help even more cats.
The publicity team leader will help promote the work of the branch as well as advertising lost and found cats, helping to reunite them with their owners.
TNR volunteers humanely capture feral cats, transport them to a vet to be neutered and then release them back to their colony.
Shaki McFarland, New Branch Development Manager, said: “Volunteering for Cats Protection is a fun and rewarding experience. We work hard to match people’s skills, interests and time availability to the roles on offer, so if you have something to contribute please get in touch.”
The branch is currently running a Hands-Free Homing scheme so cats can still be adopted within Covid-19 restrictions. Since launching Hands-Free Homing, Cats Protection has rehomed 5,000 cats across the UK.
As well as finding new homes for unwanted and abandoned cats, the charity also offers cat care advice to the public and can help towards the cost of neutering.
