Volunteering

There are many ways to volunteer at Axhayes, whatever your skills and interests, and however much time you have to give, including socialising nervous cats, cleaning pens, 'cat-cuddling' and grooming, and fund-raising.  You have to be over the age of 16 to volunteer.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us on 01395 232377, or fill out the form below.  We then ask you to come out and see us so you can have a tour and get to know about how the Centre runs.

If filling out the on-line form, in the yellow 'is there anything you would like to tell us' space, please state which of the following three options applies to you, so that we know what you are interested in doing at Axhayes:
 
1.  Socialising.....you come in any time between 11am and 3pm and either 'cat-cuddle', groom, or ask to be allocted a specific cat who is shy or is a bit depressed who you can spend time with every time you come in. NO VACANCIES AVAILABLE AT PRESENT
 
2.  Cleaning/Cat care you come in at 9am (we open to the public at 11am and need the pens clean by then, hense the early start!) and help clean the cat pens.  This can be hard work, and you will need to wear hard-wearing shoes and jeans.  You can always stay and spend time with the cats after! POSITIONS NOW AVAILABLE

3.  Fund-raising via our Friends of Group who are a great bunch of people who organise and run fund-raising events and raise vital funds for the Centre.  They meet here at Axhayes on the third Monday of every month at 6pm. Click here for more details.

We're grateful for your help!
