What we do

As part of the UK's leading feline welfare charity we have one vision: "a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs."

We rescue, rehome and care for cats and kittens that are strays, no longer wanted or experience a change in circumstance.

We provide full health checks, encouraging support for neuturing services, especially to those who cannot afford it.

We educate the public and cat owners to improve the care of cats and kittens

In order to make this all happen, Cats Protection relies on its dedicated volunteers throughout the chairity...if you think you could make a difference, see our volunteers page or apply here. 

None of the above would be possible without your donations so please keep supporting us so we can continue to provide the best possible welfare for the cats in our protection.
