Join the Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue Family

We’re rehoming, on average, 40 cats and kittens each month which is wonderful, but very hard work! We’re a friendly, sociable bunch from all walks of life and we would love some new volunteers to join us – we especially need new foster homes as we are constantly having to turn needy cats away through lack of space.


The most demanding but ultimately most rewarding role. Do you like the sound of having different kittens or cats to look after every few weeks?

Could you love, cuddle, feed and clean a cat and then give it up to a homechecked new owner? If the answer is yes then why not foster for us?

You will be given full training and have 24 hour support and all equipment will be provided. We have 40 foster homes at the moment but always seem to have around 30 cats needing to come in!

Home Checking

Can you spare an hour here and there? Could you go out to new adopters’ homes and talk about cats?

Home checking / visiting is a vital role; it enables us to answer questions and provide information to new would-be adopters. We provide full training for this role. You do not need to be a cat expert, all you need is common sense, transport and a little diplomacy.


How about collecting with us for a few hours at a supermarket, shopping centre or Pets at Home store?

You will get to cuddle and coo over our cats and kittens who join us at the fundraisers; all you need to do is hold a tin and smile! And you get to meet some lovely people.

Or how about helping on the day at one of our very successful rehoming shows?

Skills & Trades

There is probably a way that you can help us that we haven’t even thought of yet! We have in the past needed tradespeople for jobs such as heating & flooring garden enclosures.

Although we don’t offer work placements (due to our cats being fostered in homes) contributing to our Advice & Care section from knowledgeable people of any age is very much welcome!
