Who said miracles don’t exist? Here is an opportunity to become a volunteer cat cuddler or rabbit socialiser in Manchester and Salford. The RSPCA centre is searching for helpers to fuss over and feed their kitties and offer hugs and cheek rubs to the animals in their care.

Since it opened just several weeks ago, the RSPCA support centre has already taken in numerous small pets and 49 rabbits, plus 31 cats. With so many animals to take care of, the branch has put out an urgent call for volunteer helpers.

Volunteer applicant requirements

Any possible candidates who wish to apply must, of course, love animals. They should be soft-spoken and have a gentle touch, able to stroke and pet cats and rabbits for long periods. Of course, its an added advantage if you already understand about caring for pets, feeding routines, cleaning out their bedding and knowing how to handle a small animal correctly. The ability to understand how and why a cat purrs is also a distinct advantage.

# Do you love cats or rabbits?

# Perhaps you’re a crazy cat person?

# Do you dream of kittens at night?

# Do you care for any stray cats in your street?

# Do you feel fuzzy and warm when petting cats?

If you answer “YES” to any of the above, then this could be the ideal volunteer opportunity for you!

Of course, you will need to commit to a regular, weekly visit and be utterly reliable – these small animals need your help. While these aren’t salaried positions, you will be rewarded with lots of cuddles, and definitely tea and biscuits too. The RSPCA support centre is located adjacent to the Weaste Tram Stop, Salford, so getting to the centre shouldn’t pose a problem. There is also plenty of car parking nearby.

Application Form

To apply you need to complete an application and follow some steps to carry out online training. Contact the RSPCA by email rspcamcr_salford@btconnect.com or telephone 0161 737 6600 for further details.
