Cats Protection are currently recruiting individuals in the Forth Valley area to become Community Cat Champions and help with community neutering projects across Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannan.

  • Training will be provided
  • Flexible, casual hours
  • Assistance with filling out the application form can be provided (please call for more information)
  • Volunteers with car are preferable for this role (but not essential)

At Cats Protection we strongly believe that neutering cats before they can breed is an essential part of cat ownership. Unfortunately some people have misconceptions about neutering, for example, that female cats should have one litter of kittens before being neutered. Our Community Cat Champions play an important role in helping promote neutering in local communities. They build relationships with members of the public, encourage people to neuter their cats, dispel myths about neutering and ultimately help prevent unwanted cats in the future.

What can you expect to be doing?

  • Talking to members of the public day-to-day and at events
  • Promoting neutering campaigns and offering advice
  • Linking with community groups to share neutering messages
  • Attending community events to promote neutering campaigns
  • Helping arrange transport for people to get their cat to the vet to be neutered

Organisation aims and objectives

Since we were founded in 1927, we’ve helped a huge number of cats and kittens – homing over 1.5 million of them to new owners and championing the rights of countless others.
