CURRENT VOLUNTEERING VACANCIES

London Inner City Kitties is a no-kill charity in East London established to rescue and protect kitties in need. We are a non-profit charity, run entirely by a small team of dedicated volunteers. Our aim is to ensure that every inner city kitty has a safe and loving forever home, that no cats are abandoned and receive medical treatment that they need. Our trustees cover the running costs to ensure that all the donations go to medical treatment for the kitties. 

Please note that we operate through a network of fosterers, therefore, we don't have a physical facility or adoption centre.

 

We will update this website with open roles when they become available. However, we welcome individual efforts to help fundraise for us as one-off or regular fundraising efforts. Please find ways on how to do this above.

For those who have applied already, we will reach out as roles become available via email, please keep an eye on your SPAM folder. If you would like to update your application, please send us a message on social media.
