People's Postcode Lottery and Cats Protection

Cats Protection is delighted to have been chosen as a beneficiary of People’s Postcode Lottery, with the first draw set to generate funds to help us carry out our important work for cats.

There will also be the potential for us to benefit from further draws in the future, as well as raise awareness of our work among lottery players and other members of the public.

This year the support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery will:

  • Help us to successfully find loving new homes for more cats, by funding essential Cat Care Assistant roles across England, Scotland and Wales.
  • Fund our team of Volunteer Team Leaders at our centres, who are responsible for recruiting and supporting the volunteers who tirelessly devote their time and efforts to the work we do to improve cats’ lives.

Holly - Cornwall Adoption Centre“I have yet to find something more rewarding than spending hours and hours with a nervous cat, getting past the fearful and defensive behaviour to the sweet cat underneath, bringing them one step closer to being rehomed.

I thoroughly enjoy my job as Cat Care Assistant and feel so lucky to be in my position and able to offer help to the cats that come into our care.”

Holly Cole, Cat Care Assistant, Cornwall Adoption Centre

Jess - London Homing Centre“It makes our team very proud when the volunteers attribute their successes to skills and experience they’ve gained through volunteering.

I can also be there to provide additional support to volunteers who may need this, which can include working with external organisations and support workers to enable our volunteers to realise their potential.

One of the most wonderful things about my role is getting to know people from so many different backgrounds, who are all united by their love of cats!”

Jess Wager, Volunteer Team Leader, London centres

“Volunteering at Cats Protection is one of the best things I have ever done, I was always worried about it being a sad place, but after seeing first-hand how well treated the cats are, I am so glad I am helping.”
