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.
