Volunteer opportunity

Mid Kent Branch is in need of a Homing Team Leader to help place unwanted and abandoned cats with loving new owners.

The Homing Team Leader is a vital role, working with the Welfare Team Leader to provide the first port of call for people wishing to adopt a cat, arranging home visits and ensuring the right cat goes to the right home.

You don’t have to have any previous administrative experience, as the charity can provide assistance and support materials. However you must have a desire to care about cats and has bring plenty of enthusiasm.

The role is a voluntary one and by sparing just a couple of hours a week it can make a huge difference to needy cats. We are sure whoever takes on the role will find it incredibly rewarding. It’s also a great way to make new friends – both human and feline!

  Reasons to Neuter your cat

Everyday this week find out a new reason to neuter your cat

Reason 1 to Neuter: Neutered males are less likely to spray smelly urine in your house and garden

Reason 2 to Neuter: They're less likely to get diseases through mating and the risk of cancers is reduced

Reason 3 to Neuter: Got a female cat? No more being woken up by her wailing when she's in heat!

Reason 4 to Neuter: Your neutered male is less likely to roam, so there's less chance he'll be hit by a car

Reason 5 to Neuter: Your cat will fight less, meaning fewer injuries and therefore lower vet bills
