Cats Protection’s Ely & District Branch is looking to recruit fosterers to help care for unwanted and abandoned kittens and cats. The Branch, which is run entirely by volunteers needs people who can offer a temporary home to one or more cats whilst they get back on their paws.
Cat fostering is hands-on cat welfare work looking after felines on a short-term basis in cat pens in their garden – you must own your own house to foster cats.
“Cat fosterers play a vital role in our charity by caring for cats in their own home until a new owner can be found,” said Linda Hutchinson, Branch Co-ordinator.
“No special equipment is needed but cat fosterers do need to have an area in their garden where a cat pen can be housed – the pens will be provided by us at no expense to the fosterer. The charity will provide plenty of assistance and all necessary support materials.
“Offering a temporary home to a cat in need can be an incredibly rewarding experience, and becoming a volunteer for Cats Protection is a great way to meet new friends – both human and feline”.
