Home Checker Volunteers

We need volunteer Home Checkers to visit the homes of potential adopters to ensure their suitability for a new cat.  You will visit the homes of potential adopters and discus the implications of a cat in their home, completing reports and carrying out follow-up visits after adoption. 

Home Checkers must have knowledge of caring for cats and have a basic understanding of their needs and behaviours. Home Checkers must be over 18 years old and be able to provide their own transport. No previous experience is necessary, as full training will be provided.

Home visits usually last 1-2 hours and are always scheduled depending on the availability of our Home Checker volunteers.  For this reason, home checking  is a great role for anyone who can only give a limited time commitment to the Cat Hub, but we would prefer volunteers to be prepared to commit to at least one morning, afternoon or evening per week on an on-going basis.

If you are interested in this role, please contact our coordinator on 07842 434377 or email sophie.moran-barker@rspca.org.uk

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.
