28 Aug Cats Protection Southend is in need of three top cats!
A charity has launched an appeal in South-East Essex to find kind-hearted people who can play a vital role in helping cats get back on their paws.
Cat-lovers with some spare time are invited to find their purr-fect roles by volunteering for Cats Protection’s Southend & District Branch.
The branch is currently on the prowl for a Welfare Team Leader, Rehoming Team Leader and Publicity Team Leader.
Welfare and Homing Team Leaders have the important role of co-ordinating, encouraging and supporting teams of volunteer fosterers, cat care volunteers and home visitors. They provide advice and guidance and this incredible teamwork means the branch is able to help more cats and kittens in need.
The Publicity Team Leader will help promote the work of the branch as well as advertising lost and found cats and helping to match up them up to their owners.
No management experience is necessary and the charity will provide plenty of assistance and support materials.
Cats Protection’s Branch Development Manager Ceri Netts said: “The roles are incredibly varied and so the perfect people would have great people skills as well as a love of cats and bags of enthusiasm. We are sure whoever takes on the roles will find them incredibly rewarding. It’s also a great way to make new friends – both human and feline!”
Cats Protection is the UK’s leading cat charity and the Southend & District Branch is part of a nationwide network of around 250 volunteer-run branches and 36 centres that together help around 200,000 cats and kittens each year.
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.
