Advice on volunteering

Hi everyone, I'm just looking for some advice really.

I've just finished the second year of an animal behaviour and welfare degree, the third year of my degree is a placement year. I'm trying to look for suitable places to volunteer, as I have a keen interest in cats and plan on hopefully working with them once I have finished my degree, I wanted to volunteer at a rescue or something similar.
I've spent quite a lot of time searching and contacting local shelters and organisations which I may be able to volunteer at, however I seem to be getting nowhere.
I just wondered if anyone had any advice on what else I could do or where I could look that might help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

At the moment Plymouth, however I may be moving with family depending on where I can get a placement, to either west Yorkshire or back up to the north east (Newcastle/Sunderland area). So i'm considering any of those areas at the moment.
