Volunteer With Us!
We always need volunteers. There are lots of reasons to help out at Tŷ-Nant, but the main reason is to make sure that our cats are happy, safe, clean, healthy and loved. Without volunteers, our furry friends would not have Tŷ-Nant to call their home. If you love cats and would like to volunteer, we need help all day everyday, so any time you can spare (even as little as an hour) to come and help us clean, feed and pamper would make a huge difference to our cats. Our voluntary role is below.
All volunteers must be over 17 to adhere to our Insurance requirements and must be able to get to the sanctuary.
Current Volunteer Roles
Sanctuary Assistant – Would need a great number of volunteers to provide full cover of 4 per day minimum.
We need several people to help out with the cleaning, feeding and medicating at the sanctuary. This involves cleaning the areas in which the cats reside, including changing litter trays, food and water bowls, changing bedding, and thorough cleaning and disinfection of the areas, floors, table and all surfaces. Refilling the litter and paper bins, washing dishes and trays and putting away. Doing washing and drying and putting away, hoovering hallways, sweeping and mopping floors. Sorting food storage, donations and other duties as required, including socializing the cats and kittens and spending time with them after all cleaning is completed. Sanctuary assistants arrive at 9.30 and are there until approximately mid day depending on how many volunteers are in and the amount of kittens we have in.
We also sometimes need volunteers for specific things, like administration or IT support.
For example, volunteers built this website and maintain it.
We also need help with vet runs when we have poorly cats that need to get to the vet between vet visits or to take back and forth for neutering.
We often need non-cat related things like building maintenance, upholstery cleaning and painting and decorating done as well, so if you can help us out with your mad skills in any of these areas, we'd love that and our cats will love you too.
These needs will be posted here as and when we have a requirement, so please keep an eye out if you'd like to help us out.
