    Why I work for Mayhew

    “I work at Mayhew so I can make cats’ lives a little bit better and help them find a safe and loving place to call home. Our cats have a really positive effect on the people that adopt them. When you find the very best home for a cat, it means just as much to the adopters as it does to the cat. When people go the extra mile for their cat, it makes all the difference.”

    Matthew Pearson, Cat Adoption Officer

    “I think it’s important to give back to your local community, which is why I’ve been volunteering most of my adult life. I started volunteering on Mayhew’s reception desk on Saturday afternoons in July 2013 and it didn’t take long for Saturday to become my favourite day of the week. The more time I spent at Mayhew, the more I admired the work and services that Mayhew provides to my local community.”

    Duschanca Singh, Fundraising Officer (Corporate and Community)

    “I feel extremely lucky and privileged to work for Mayhew. Being able to help animals who are sick, injured or abandoned and bring them back to Mayhew where they can receive veterinary care, a safe environment and all the love they could ever hope for, is extremely rewarding. One of my favourite parts of the job is being able to offer support to pet owners and their animals in the community.”

    Alisa Ford, Deputy Head of Animal Welfare (Community)
