The Milton Keynes and District branch of Cats Protection is to recruit a lost and found officer to help reunite missing cats with their owners.
The branch, which is run entirely by volunteers, needs someone who can dedicate a few hours a month to help oversee its lost and found registry.
No administrative experience is necessary and the charity can provide plenty of assistance and support materials.
Cats Protection is the UK’s leading cat charity and the Milton Keynes and District branch is part of a nationwide network of around 230 volunteer-run branches and 37 centers which together help around 200,000 cats and kittens every 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 with neutering costs.
“The branch does a tremendous job helping local cats, but as we enter the colder months we need support for lost and found cats.
“Naturally, owners who have lost their cats can be very distressed, so we need someone with good people skills,” said volunteer Belle O’Connor.
“It’s a rewarding role and no previous experience is necessary as long as they care about cats and have a lot of enthusiasm. The role is voluntary and saving just a few hours a month can make a huge difference to cats in need.
“Our volunteers are an amazing group of people and it’s a great way to make new friends, both human and feline! »
