Charity Commission registration number 275238.

We have a team of helpers who look after the cats and clean them out every day, 365 days a year. They give the cats their medication and ensure that they get seen by our vets when needed.

Some of our staff also do rehoming duties, and deal with members of the public who want to rehome a cat.

We have a devoted band of helpers who help with running the large site at the Sanctuary in Bromley Road and the Charity Shop in Eld Lane, Colchester.
Without the hard work, kindness and generosity of our helpers we would not be able to achieve as much as we do.
If you would like to volunteer, please visit the Charity Shop or Sanctuary during opening hours, or email us.
You must be over 18 to volunteer at either location, and must be a car driver to get to the Sanctuary as we are out in the country not on a regular bus route.

In Colchester, go north up Harwich Road, turning right at the mini roundabout into Bromley Road and follow the road for about one mile out into the country. We are next door to Blenheim Nurseries garden centre.
From the A12 take the A1232 (Colchester North) turn off. Go down Ipswich Road to the Rovers Tye roundabout and turn left into St John's Rd. Follow this road to the end and turn right at the mini roundabout into Harwich Rd. A hundred metres down Harwich Rd there is a mini roundabout, turn left into Bromley Rd and continue for about one mile as mentioned above.
