Volunteer help
Volunteers help Croydon Animal Samaritans in many ways

  1. Fostering animals short term until permanent homes are found. (Needed urgently - see below)
  2. Assist with book sales.
  3. Fund raising - Work on own initiative to raise funds, help at events, knit catnip mice (see pattern below).

Please note that we are unable to offer work experience placements to students.

Urgent Appeal for Dog & Cat Fosterers

We urgently need short term fosterers for both dogs and cats.

If you live within the area of South East London, South Croydon, Banstead, Caterham or in the surroundings areas we would love to hear from you.

Croydon Animal Samaritans will build a chalet with its own heater in your garden, we will pay all the costs and provide you with food, litter, bowls etc and even the cleaning products you will need. The only thing we need you to provide is tender loving care for these cats or kittens who have lost their homes for one reason or another through no fault of their own. 

If you are willing to foster but do not have space in your garden for a purpose built chalet then you can still foster in your own home if you have a spare room or we can provide you with a cat pen. 

Vet bills are all paid for by our different ways of fundraising and the small donation we ask for when re-homing our cats and kittens.

We won't ask you to check new homes just welcome the new people when they come to view, then to collect their new 'babies'.
