Feral Officer:
We require a Feral Officer to join our dedicated team of volunteers. The Feral Officer will be part of the Welfare Team, and help to deal with cats that need trapping and neutering in various locations such as farms and industrial estates. The role may also involve helping to trap and relocate feral kittens. The Feral Officer needs to be able to drive our branch van, and have some spare time to regularly monitor the traps.

Lost and Found Volunteer
We are looking for a volunteer to assist our Lost and Found Officer. The role involves reuniting lost and found cats with their owners, informing and notifying local vets and charities, and using social media to share information and assist cat owners who have lost cats, or members of the public who have found a cat.
