About your household
About your volunteering
To become a Community Rehoming Volunteer (Cats) at Battersea, there are a few requirements you must meet. We hope that you understand that these have been put in place to ensure our animals get the best possible care while they wait to find a permanent home. Please read the below requirements carefully and tick the boxes for all those that apply:
We are looking for Community Rehoming Volunteers who have no dogs or other cats in their household. Many of our cats are not comfortable being around other animals.
Being placed in a new environment can be a stressful experience for our cats. Therefore, we like them to have somewhere quiet which is away from the busier parts of the home so they can gain confidence at their own pace.
We ask that any children in the home are over 8 years of age. This is because some of our cats are timid and require a calm and quiet household in which to gain confidence. This is in no way a reflection of your child or children, but a rule to safeguard the welfare of our cats.
