Cat Fostering Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers who can provide care and suitable housing in a safe environment for cats and kittens, in accordance with RSPCA policies and guidelines.  Fostered animals may include pregnant cats who give birth while in foster care and very young kittens.

Fosterers are expected to feed, water and groom cats as appropriate, provide suitable bedding (supplied if required), keep accurate records of expenditure, via receipts and completed expense forms, and talk to members of public about cats in their care with the hope of rehoming them.

Previous experience of fostering is beneficial and experience of caring for cats is essential. You will need a separate room to keep the cats in and your family must be fully supportive. If you have existing animals they must be spayed/neutered unless there are medical reasons why they can’t be. Training will be provided. Expenses are available.

If you are interested in this role, please contact our coordinator on 07842 434377 or email

Before you join us as a volunteer, you will be asked to complete a volunteer application form, attend an informal interview and provide referees for us to contact (depending upon the role you are applying for). When you start as a volunteer you will be provided with an induction programme and any training you may need to carry out the role.
